Historian and author Dr. Tiya Miles and Senior Story Producer at Ancestry, Nicka Sewell-Smith, discuss how our personal histories inform our identities and perception of the world, and the systemic barriers which deny many Americans the opportunity to engage with their own histories.
Learn how, by addressing these barriers and investing in the personal histories missing from our shared narrative, we can build a stronger understanding of our connected past.
This event was presented in partnership with Ancestry®.
