Join us in a heartfelt celebration of Juneteenth, as we come together to explore and honor our African American heritage through the power of genealogy.

Over two enlightening days, we'll embark on a journey to trace our family roots, uncovering the hidden stories that shape our identities. These workshops are organized by Founder of the Brister English Project and Co-researcher of the London Nelson Legacy Initiative, Walter English.

Day One: Tracing Family Histories (June 16, 1-4pm)

  • Discover practical methods to build your family tree
  • Learn how to use records and historical context in genealogy research
  • Hear powerful narratives that bring history to life

Day Two: Practical Application (June 22, 4-7pm)

Walter English is a genealogist that leads the Brister English Project, a nonprofit committed to helping African American descendants of chattel slavery trace their family histories. Through innovative research, comprehensive resources, and educational workshops, the project empowers individuals to uncover their family's history.
