Many of our ancestors followed the North Star to Freedom.
We, their children will never be free until our roots are as much
a part of us as the air we breathe. Sever a tree's roots, and the
tree dies. Sever a people's roots and they are lost.For african americans,
the search for our roots can be a difficult and daunting task.
Some of us jump on the geneaology train, only to be de-railed by

Where do I begin?
What resources are there?
Where did my elders come from?
