Event Details

Doors open at 6:30pm


India Arie, Tom Joyner, Representative John Lewis –just some of the many celebrities who’ve joined hundreds of everyday African Americans to embrace the growing phenomenon of DNA sequencing and traced their Ancestral Roots to specific present-day countries on the African continent. 

 

On the next Vocal Point, we’ll talk with panelists about DNA science, it’s value, and the social implications for those seeking to clarify their place in the African Diaspora. 

 

And, we’ll speak with everyday citizens for whom finding out they were from – Cameroon, Nigeria or Sierra Leone – went far beyond the simple knowledge itself.   So join us for African Genealogy:  Finding Present-day Meaning In Our Distant Past!

WHUT Television

Howard University Television went on the air November 17, 1980 as WHMM. The station’s debut received considerable local and national attention as it was the first and only Public Broadcasting Station (PBS) member station licensed to and operated by a predominantly African-American institution, historic Howard University, Washington, DC.

The station’s signal reaches over 2 million households in the greater Washington metro area. WHUT has thousands of loyal viewers and donors who tune daily to its unique mix of PBS series such as NOVA, The American Experience, Sesame Street, and its original productions on local and national topics. Specials also highlight special events and renown speakers at Howard University, such as Cornel West, Toni Morrison and Nobel Laureate Ivar Giaever. WHUT airs more than 3,500 hours of public affairs and educational programming each year. WHUT has won 13 Emmys, and numerous other awards such as the Telly, Aurora, and Cine Golden Eagle.
