Virtual Program: African American Genealogy Workshop

May 16, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

African American Genealogy Workshop

Learn more about the history and genealogy of African and Native American peoples from genealogical expert Angela Walton-Raji, and Alaina Roberts, Ph.D., assistant professor of history at the University of Pittsburgh.

Walton-Raji will discuss methods of searching for your joint ancestry while Roberts will address her work focusing on Native land in Indian Territory in which Indian freedpeople (the former enslaved people of members of the Chickasaw, Cherokee, Creek, Seminole, and Choctaw Nations) and Black Americans were able to obtain land, build communities, and enjoy certain rights and freedoms.

Both presenters are descendants of African and Native American ancestors.

Registration for this program is $10 per person.

This program will be presented on the Zoom platform, where conversation and questions from participants are encouraged. A link to the program will be sent after registration is completed.
