Alex Haley, author of Roots, said, “In all of us, there is a hunger to know our heritage and where we come from.”

If you have a burning desire to discover your family heritage, then join us for our exciting 13th Annual Black History Month program. We will celebrate the power of African American genealogy. Our program will start with a musical selection that will set the celebratory mood. Then, presenters will engage the audience with interactive genealogy presentations, and breakout sessions, including riveting stories about some of DeKalb and Atlanta’s oldest African American families.
