Because of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade, Black people around the world have lost a great part of their history. Although this being fact, many have discovered ways and have been determined to discover who they are by doing historical research of their ancestry.

Have you ever had questions about the historical roots of your family? Are their old tales passed down from generation to generation that you would like to de-bunk or proove?

Because of modern technology, today research is available through your local library and websites such as ancestry.com

Join us as we journey through the ancestry of two of our guests.

We will be joined by Avery Harry, who will talk to us about her Great Great Great Grand Father Spotswood Rice. Who was this man? What was his contribution to his family and society?

We will also be joined by Alex 'D Paul Lee, a Texas resident that made a life changing transformation in his life by discovering his roots. Before getting to know his ancestry, Alex was partying, out smoking weed, and just acting as if he had no direction.

All those ways changed once he discovered who he was..
