The story of the enslaved often doesn’t focus on those who resisted the institution and fought to end it. In this episode, we discuss uprisings, revolts, and movements intended to liberate those who were unwilling chattel slaves in the Americas.
The ancestry of Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has been a hot button issue within pop culture as well as within the family history and genealogy community.

BlackProGen LIVE weighs in, from our perspective as people of color.
HBCU’s (historical black colleges and universities) have been the bedrock of the African American community since their inception. For that reason alone they are genealogical goldmines! In this episode, we’ll talk about how to uncover connections to these institutions, how to research your family members who attended them, and more! Special Guest: Dr. Lopez Matthews, Howard University.
