"Who Do You Think You Are?: Examining the African-American Experience in Slavery and Freedom through Family History Television."
Presented by Dr. Thomas Edge, Bowling Green State University Department of Ethnic Studies
Thursday, October 5, 3-5 p.m., 316 BTSU
Presentation followed by Q&A
Light refreshments served

The resurgence of genealogy and family history in the twenty-first century is evident in everything from the rise of online repositories like Ancestry.com to the growing commercial use of DNA testing. Popular culture reflects this through television shows like Finding Your Roots, Genealogy Roadshow, and Who Do You Think You Are? Focusing on the last of these, this talk examines how the family history documentary navigates the complicated, overlapping realities of slavery and freedom in the African American experience.
