    Anthropologist Donald Brown is the leading authority on "human universals" - the hundreds of attributes that every human has in common

    Anthropologist Donald Brown is the leading authority on "human universals" - the hundreds of attributes that every human has in common.

The stories told on Pangea Day will leverage these universals to build bonds among cultures.
