What do you know about your history? My cousin from East St Louis is a dentist. My great grandfather purchased 500 acres of land when he was freed from slavery. Our grandmother left to go to New York when her children were grown because her husband died to help pay the taxes on their land.
Many of my family are educators. One of my cousins went to Harvard and John Hopkins university and is a pediatrician. We have preachers, technicians, nurses and other professionals in our family. This is just a little of my black history.
