Last night during our BlackProGen LIVE episode (which was very good, check out the previous post to watch) we discussed the importance of telling our story. If we don’t tell our story who will? Who’s going to give it justice? As genealogist and family historians I think we have a duty to share and what we have researched with not only our family but the general public as well. As black people, it’s especially important for us to tell and share our story as well. In some instances, black people have been written out of the history books. If we are telling our own stories this won’t happen. Tell your young family members who their ancestors were, talk about their hardships and their accomplishments. Knowing I came from strong, hardworking, family oriented, business-minded, god fearing people makes me proud and when I feel like giving up I think, nothing in my life today can compare to what some of my ancestors had to endure so I keep going because they kept going. I say share, share, share, share your family’s history by blogging, writing a book publishing, or even writing facebook posts.
