Our Ancestors, Our Stories of S.C. African Americans with The Memory Keepers

  Broadcast in History

Call in to speak with the host

(818) 691-7404

Members of the Memory Keepers, a group of descendants of the Old Edgefield District (South Carolina) African American diaspora and one historian, join Jane this evening to talk about their collaboration on their new book called Our Ancestors, Our Stories. Tonight's show includes Bernice Bennett, Harris Bailey, Jr., Ellen Butler and Vincent Sheppard.

The Memory Seekers came together to share their family stories, create a family legacy, and fulfill a vision to write and publish a book about their African American ancestors. 

This book offers you insights into the African American experience in Edgefield County, South Carolina through the eyes of five very different authors, who have a strong belief that it is their responsibility to tell these stories. They want their ancestors to be remembered as individuals who lived, loved, worked, survived, raised families, and had faith in God. Through their walks in life from slavery to freedom, they left a legacy.
