Past Is Prologue: African-American Genealogy w/ Antoinette Harrell

Antoinette Harrell

In today’s episode:

I chat with genealogist Antoinette Harrell about her research on family histories of African-Americans (descendants of American chattel slavery) and the unique challenges that arise for this specific group when doing the legwork. We also discuss what the advent of DNA means in the quest for self-knowledge and the increasing need of families to record, question and to take interest in their lineage in a time where escapism through screens runs amok overshadowing the desire to take notice of their own stories from the past.

James Murray is a native of Little Rock, Arkansas and currently resides in Pensacola, Florida. You can catch him talking politics and other issues that interest or bother him on his podcast, Maladjusted Life
