From the website we read:
AMAZINGLY, the accompanying website isn't completed. Apparently they intend to have biographies of some of America's most notable African American celebrities. But the site is on the right track with the following sub pages:
-- ANALYZING THE EVIDENCE - testing your knowledge and providing tips on preserving your own family heritage
-- THE SCIENCE & THE INVESTIGATORS - (due out Feb 9th)
-- WHO AM I? A GENEALOGY GUIDE - (due out Feb 9th)
-- FOR EDUCATORS with great ideas for incorporating African American Heritage into the classroom curriculum
-- RESOURCES which lists a likely mix of book titles to guide the progress of a personal journey to finding African American Roots
Happy family tree climbing!
