About this Event

Have you ever wondered about our collective African ancestry—what that ancestry means today or what you can know about it? From newspaper advertisements to online databases, the quest to find family members and ancestors has never stopped. Join Bethel 21 for “Ancestry” day on Saturday, October 19 from 11am - 2pm at Metropolitan AME Church, as we explore tools that can potentially aid African Americans in our continued search for our ancestors.

Guests speakers include genetics and genealogy experts Fatimah Jackson, Dorothy Roberts, Janina Jeff, and Shannon Christmas. This forum has been designed with an intergenerational audience in mind. Whether you're interested in genealogy, curious about DNA testing, or a medical professional interested in the role of ancestry information and race on health care, this forum is for you. We hope to see you there!
