This month, we have joined forces with AfricanAncestry.com to celebrate what makes us unique. Black is beautiful in every hue and we want to celebrate it all. And who better to do that with than AfricanAncestry.com.
When I think of celebrating what makes us unique, I think about my mom, sister and me. We are different heights, shades and sizes and we are uniquely beautiful (inside and out) in our own ways. We are all so different. Yet, we all share the same family bonds and experiences. And having that family connection is so empowering as we go forward and make our way in life as individuals.
I can’t tell you how empowered I felt to have my ancestry traced by AfricanAncestry.com. And can you image how my mom, aunties and uncles felt when they heard our roots were traced back to Sierra Leone. It literally brought tears to our eyes.
#AfricanAncestry Celebration Prize Package Giveaway
This year, BMWK is celebrating 10 years of supporting and encouraging marriage and family in the African American Community. And we couldn’t have made it to 10 years without the support of readers that make what we do possible. We are also thankful for the many great partnerships that we’ve built, like the one we have with AfricanAncestry.com. What better way to uplift the African American Family than to connect people with the roots of their family tree? And AfricanAncestry.com has helped more than 500,000 people do just that, as the world leader in tracing maternal and paternal lineages of African descent. Unlike other companies, AfricanAncestry.com gives the specific present-day country and ethnic group that you share ancestry with. Not a percentage of how much African ancestry you have.
African Ancestry is committed to providing a unique service to the black community by working daily to improve the cultural, emotional, physical, spiritual and economic wellbeing of people across the African Diaspora.
