BlackProGen LIVE 2020

There’s a lot going on the BPG world, so don’t miss out!

We’ve got two new flavors to keep people of color genealogy and family history research at the forefront!

Our first big announcement is about #CREWChat, the BPG hosted Twitter chat!

What’s a Twitter chat? Well, they are are discussions hosted by an account that pose questions or give out prompts around a central theme. Chat participants then tweet their responses using the designated hashtag. In this case it’s #CREWChat.

Each #CREWChat in 2020 will be focused on a particular movie or TV show where the prompts will be focused on how you can identify or track down the family history and genealogy of the characters. There are 17 scheduled!

Catch the first one on Tuesday, January 7 and be all about the movie The Color Purple! Released in 1985, this cultural mainstay stars Whoopi Goldberg, Danny Glover, Oprah Winfrey, Rae Dawn Chong, and more. Then, on January 21, we’ll be talking about about the hit movie Soul Food. #CREWChats take place at 8pm Central.

Be sure to: 1) follow us on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/BlackProGen, 2) check out the attached images for the January 2020 and full schedule for the year and 3) to join us on Twitter on the designated days!
