AFRICA: The Human Cradle

An International Conference Paying Tribute to Richard E. Leakey


"Each year more discoveries are made in the field of human prehistory and our understanding changes. With each change we are closer to the truth and that, of course, is our objective." 

- Dr. Richard E. Leakey



On behalf of the Turkana Basin Institute and Stony Brook University, and in partnership with the National Geographic Society

We are proud to present an International Conference to celebrate the immeasurable, life-long contributions by Richard E. Leakey to furthering our appreciation of Africa’s centrality in the narrative of human evolution.
