I believe strongly in the mission of 'I Love Ancestry' and feel that it is an extraordinarily valuable resource for scholars and everyday people alike to learn more about history and culture from perspectives and with voices that often to go unheard. By bridging the narratives of American Indians and Black Americans, 'I Love Ancestry', also assists in the global need of broadening the often narrowly held understandings of diversity and culture as well as the narrow understanding of Black and Native American Indian identities.
