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.
Join a group of African American co-authors (The Memory Keepers), Harris Bailey, Jr., Bernice Bennett, Ellen Butler, Ethel Dailey and Vincent Sheppard to discuss a collaborate book about their ancestors in Edgefield, South Carolina.
You will find in Our Ancestors, Our Stories an historical overview of life and events in South Carolina, and particularly Edgefield, and a compilation of five unique stories depicting the discovery of the African American experience. Through these stories, the rich value of using primary and secondary sources will become evident as each discovery examines relationships in the home, the neighborhood and the community.
