1. Tracing your Ancestral roots.

    This video is a combination of different Celebrities tracing some of their roots, From:

    • Maya Angelou
    • Morgan Freeman
    • Chris Rock
    • Tina Turner
    • Don Cheadle
    • Henry Louis Gates

    If you are part of the Wider recent African Diaspora (During the last 500 years I.E African American, Afro-latino or Afro Caribbean etc… ) Your history is in your blood. You share a link to every ancestor that came before you All of which make you who you are.

    So the belief that you lost your roots & culture is not entirely true as this is something you can reclaim YOURSELF. It took alot for that to be removed from you it may not take so much effort for you to reclaim that back.

    "We are Made by the past" .
