I’m Featured in Jet Magazine!

Jet Magazine has such a long and established history in African-American culture. I’ve been reading it since I was young.  So, imagine how tickled I was when invited to be interviewed by Deanna Martin -Osuagwu for a piece she wrote about African-American genelaogy bloggers.  After answering a few questions for her, she crafted mine, and the others’, responses together into an interesting article about each of us and our motivations for blogging and sharing our family history. How cool!

Thus, I’m pleased to share a link to my synopsis in the online article. Click on the image below.

I am among some great company too! I already knew of Melvin Collier and Tim Pinnick. I have been following their work in the genealogy community for awhile now. The other person featured is Adrienne Abiodun – a children’s book author and family historian. I’ve not been familiar with her work, but I will definitely be following her now!

Thanks again Deanna! Your article has made my day. 🙂
