There is no greater truth about ourselves than the past we have uncovered.... It was time to acknowledge our loved ones who were captured, bound, and herded to other lands and stripped of their birthright. It was time for my family to open that door and embrace this part of our past. Weslynn Allen refuses to sit silently as her family legacy becomes forever hidden in family members gone and almost forgotten. Initiated by an enlightening conversation with her father, Weslynn realizes the keys to the past lies solely within her generation. She takes on the challenge, and years of research takes her far from the Low Country lifestyle, Spanish moss-covered oak trees, and vast marshlands in her hometown of Savannah to pinpoint family histories farther than her beloved South. Following the desire to discover her heritage, Weslynn's inquiries lead her from the back roads of Georgia, to the rice fields of South Carolina, and ultimately, to Africa. Within the pages of censuses and helpful interviews with family members, a bloodline is found, promising the Allen's birthright will be told. Produced as a labor of love, from slave trade to a bright future, Weslynn documents the beautiful branches of a family tree that was almost lost. Follow her blueprint in Trace.Herman was the emcee, John gave a heartfelt speech, and our nieces, Sabrina and Charlene sang. My daughter, Anika ...
