What Makes Us Human?

I was searching the net looking for information about family and culture in Ethiopia. I was interested in learning how their up bringing might compare to children raised in the US. That is how I found the Ethiopia-American magazine called Tadias.

One of the articles was about the man that found Lucy's baby. Not the red-head from TV but Lucy the oldest human remains found in Ethiopia in 1974. Salem is the name given to the skeletal remains dated at 3.3 million years old. The skeleton of the three-year old girl where discovered by Paleoanthropologist Zeresenay Alemseged who was born in Axum, Ethiopia.

In this video oZeresenay talks about our connection to Africa and what makes us human.
