This show will explain the reasons why many black people are changing their last names (and even their first names) to names that relate to their original history and names that they feel they can better identify with, as opposed to using the names that were given during slavery. This show will also explain the importance of names from all aspects and the reason it is important for black people to gain their own identity.
