African-American Families Trace Their Roots

AUGUST 12, 2006 -- Nearly 60 people showed up at the New Hanover County Library Saturday morning with one common goal: to understand more about their roots and where their family comes from.
Doctor Barnetta McGhee White, a retired NC Central professor, showed the participants ways they can trace their family trees and reconnect to their past.
“I think it’s very important for people to know that they have a history that they can be proud of,” said McGhee White. “Particularly, it’s great for young people to know that.”
The event was sponsored by several local historical groups.
