Please join us for a live interview with Eddie Manuel at Backintyme.biz at Blog Talk Radio. Eddie will talk about the Manuel Family who are of Lumbee & Melungeon descent. The Manuel family shared a Portuguese heritage, as well as Native American. Eddie will share with us his DNA scores and what those means to him, as an educator, father, husband & Melungeon descendant in the 21st century.
Eddie Manuel, has made his home in Wytheville, Va for 35 years. He is an adjunct professor teaches American, World History and Military Leaders at Granthum University and serves as consultant to the Melungeon Heritage Association. Eddie has also built a "Melungeon Village" in his back yard.
"To be honest, in the beginning I did not care about history at all. That was, until I read several books by Dr. Brent Kennedy, who opened my eyes to my Melungeon identified ancestry. When I completed the DNA testing is when I realized the magnitude of the truth in origins, for my family. The analysis provided familial matches from Saudi Arabia, and Palestine. Furthermore, validating my family history of Turkish, Portuguese, Spanish, and Native American ancestry.
I have been able to trace my ancestry back to early 1600's related to William Hennings Bryan and Daniel Boone. I was also able to obtain records from the National Archives which I learned of the families ties to the Creek and Seminole Indians."

Through combining his talents in singing, dancing, and acting, Grady Harrell II has had numerous opportunities to work with a variety of well known music artists, land acting roles on television, while at the same time recording and performing as a solo artist. His years of experience in the music business began at the age of 9 when he began to teach himself to sing while looking up to his role model Smokey Robinson. A native of Los Angeles, California, Grady Harrell was born into a musical family where singing was (and still is) a way of life. His mother, Evelyn Harrell, (a singer as well) was in the group Friends of Distinction while his grandmother, Essie King, was a "classical singer/teacher". Grady persisted in sharpening his vocal skills, and at twelve years old he formed a group called Young Gents. He also formed a very popular group called Papa’s Results while he was in high school. This group (which also included his sister Rocq-e) remained active for over a span of more than six years. They soon gained opportunities to work with artist such as Shalamar and The Whispers just to name a few.
Grady Harrell's stamina, talent, and love for music are strongly evident through his three solo albums: “Mwana” (1985) on Solar/MCA Records, “Come Play with Me” (1989) on RCA Records, and “Romance Me” (1990) on RCA Record. In recent years, he has done tours in Europe with his sister Rocq-E, as leading vocalist in a Motown/Atlantic theater production called "R.E.S.P.E.C.T." He usually makes appearances in Holland several months per year where the fans are
very welcoming and are more than appreciative of his soulful singing.
Currently Grady Harrell is in the process of recording a new album for Cliff Hanger Records where Chris Dixon, C.E.O. of the record label, is producing the album.
