From the newly freed slaves of 1863 to today's black farmers and landowners, African Americans have fought to acquire and maintain land. They have encountered crippling obstacles along the way. In 1910, nearly one million black landowners in the United States owned a total of 15 million acres. By 1969, they held only 6 millions acres. In 1920, blacks owned 14% of the nations' farms. Today, there are less than 18,000 black farmers, representing less than 1% of all farms according to the NAACP National Voter Empowerment Program Office. http://www.NAACP.org
Where are we today? Are we losing our land due to Taxes, Mortgages, Heir Property, Loans, Swindles, Lack of Education, Predatory Lending? Please join Host and Genealogist Antoinette Harrell for this upcoming discussion.
Many people from every ethic background can share great stories about their grandfathers. Our grandfathers provided for their families, they purchased their own land, they grew their own food, they built their own homes, and many of them were self-employed-- although many had little or no former education according to the U.S. Census from 1870 to 1940.
Those men took care of the community. They had skills that were passed down from generation to generation. Have we studied the history and the journeys of our grandfathers? What can we learn from the valuable lessons they taught us? Have we abandoned some valuable lessons they taught? Have we lost our inhertiance?

The Harrell, Gordon, Richardson, and Vining Family has loss several family members since our last family reunion in 2012. Coping with the loss of a close friend or family member may be one of the hardest challenges that many of us face. When we lose a spouse, sibling or parent our grief can be particularly intense. Loss is understood as a natural part of life, but we can still be overcome by shock and confusion, leading to prolonged periods of sadness or depression.
The death of a loved one is an event that all of us is likely to experience during our lifetimes, often on numerous occasions. Whilst lives are often transformed by such loss, it does not necessarily need to be for the worse in the long term.

Noted author Alex Haley's television series "Roots" prompted many African Americans to become interested in African American genealogy.

Are we putting enough emphasis on family history, educational discussions, family investments, family charitable causes, family business affairs, successsions, family estate planning and other important family matters that are vital to the family existence?
