Last night while channel surfing I had this serendipitous moment when I found the program African American Lives 2. Each person received their ancestors' information in a scrapbook and each page brought more and more surprises. It truly inspired me.
I am SO into genealogy and scrapbooking so this was right up my alley. The segments highlighting Morgan Freeman's turning the page to see the still existing gravestones of his ancestors literally made me cry. Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr did an amazingly thorough job of telling each ancestor's story. He even found a distant cousin (of sorts) in Kathleen Henderson. She was one of thousands of viewers who applied to be on this installment of the program. I did not catch the initial version of the program in 2006, but I am sure it must also be a masterpiece. The richness in knowing where each of them came from could be felt through the screen.
PBS leads the way in bringing priceless programming to the american people. I believe we should all treasure our histories and beyond that share it with our children and grandchildren as a priceless heirloom.
Thank you for visiting my blog!

We had an awesome time catching up with all the girls there and seeing what everyone was working on. Thanks Michelle, Andrea, Tawni and the rest of the crew @ Scrapbook Central.
I used the Tim Holtz distress crackle paint on the chipboard heart (since I could not find grungeboard). I love how easy the crackle paint is to use. I recommend it to anyone who wants to add that little something to their embellishments.
