Over the years it has been the norm too often to represent the various people of color of this hemisphere in a negative light. And even today well into the twenty first century, too many times the positive contributions of these individuals and/or groups of people are given lip service when anything positive is brought to light, if at all. However, more people from our respective communities have undertaken to present the broad spectrum of experiences and accomplishments, as well as express the beautiful diversity and pride that make us the people we are. Adrien Heckstall is among the most dedicated of individuals that has taken on the task of telling and documenting our own stories in a way that is objective and empowering. Through his tireless efforts, 'I Love Ancestry' continues to portray the best of our strengths, beauty, and dignity.
