Join The Leakey Foundation for an evening of science, cocktails and conversation at SciCafe at the American Museum of Natural History. Wednesday, April 1 at 7:00 pm. Doors open at 6:30. Admission is free and registration is recommended.

Walking on two legs, or ‘bipedalism’, is one of the key characteristics defining humans and our early ancestors. But what an odd way to walk and run. In this SciCafe, join Museum Curator Brian Richmond and Jeremy DeSilva from Boston University in exploring the great advantages of walking on two legs that allow us to be human, as well as the unfortunate consequences of evolving bipedalism from a body plan designed to walk on four, not two, legs.
