Casting Call?

When African American Lives first aired in February 2006, over
eleven million people watched me help eight celebrity guests reclaim
their lost roots. Since then, I have been deluged with requests from
viewers wanting to know how they too can use genealogy and genetics
to learn about their family history.

To acknowledge this interest, and believing that all of us can
benefit from exploring our past, I have decided to help
one 'regular' African American person discover his or her forgotten
ancestry - and that person could be YOU!

This sounds so exciting. I can't wait to see if it's someone from our project that wins.
