For many genealogy can seem overwhelming, especially for those of slave ancestry. There are very specific challenges that African Americans researching family history face. Tune as the Sistas chat with African American genealogy expert Elon Cook about the challenges and resources for African American Genealogy. Elon Cook is an experienced genealogist; she received her Masters Degree from Brown University and is a newly confirmed member of the Daughters of the American Revolution.

Hear perspectives on how to keep America the "Land of the Free and Home of the Brave". It starts with TRUTH.
Jefferson quoted in his Bill for Religious Freedom '...and finally, that truth is great and will prevail if left to herself; that she is the proper and sufficient antagonist to error, and has nothing to fear from the conflict unless by human interposition disarmed of her natural weapons, free argument and debate,"--simply means truth always prevails over evil and error unless man interposes-- cut off-- free argument and debate.
The time for Conferences to educate people of the truth has come. In our schools today, there is so much taught and there is no debate allowed which makes a lot of untruths in Common Core teachings to become ingrained in the minds of students as facts. Hear about upcoming Conferences on Common Core and share it with friends and family. Also the new movie by Dinesh D'Souza has sparked a fire for people across the nation and the world to see that America is in fact a testimony to all of God's amazing grace for all nations. Come join us and open your eyes to new perspectives.
Hear perspectives with Mrs. Barbara Moore on what is going on in the fight against Common Core. Things will be heating up soon as this untested, abusive indoctrination process being shoved to children in schools are not sitting well with most parents. Hear about upcoming conferences so that you can find out more. We hope to have speakers from here and abroad to awaken America's sleeping parents about the mentality being pushed on their children. Learn all about it and share.
