Global Family Reunion
If you combined a TED talk with Coachella with a family picnic, you'd get the Global Family Reunion, an epic celebration of the human family, with an amazing lineup of celebrity cousins: Henry Louis Gates Jr. (PBS's Finding Your Roots), Morgan Spurlock (Supersize Me), Dr. Oz, magician David Blaine, singer Lisa Loeb, comedian Hasan Minhaj, actor Michael Showalter (Wet Hot American Summer) and more, plus video appearances by Daniel Radcliffe and George H.W. Bush. Enjoy live performances by Sister Sledge ("We Are Family") and Paul Williams ("Rainbow Connection"), have a potato sack race, take part in the world's biggest family photo, hear talks by scientists and historians (including folks behind 23andMe, the Personal Genome Project and others), and tons more. The Global Family Tree is an all-day celebration at New York Hall of Science, brought to you by New York Times bestselling author A.J. Jacobs (The Year of Living Biblically). A portion of the proceeds benefit Alzheimer's research.
