Since its inception, African Ancestry’s lineage reveals have impacted the lives of more than 100,000 people in the U.S. from communities at large to global leaders such as Oprah Winfrey and Reverend Jesse Jackson and all participants in the ground-breaking PBS special “African American Lives 1 & 2” with Dr. Henry Louis Gates.

African Ancestry, the pioneers of DNA-based ancestry tracing for people of African descent in the U.S., sparked a trend during the National Black Arts Festivals (NBAF) that has left thousands of Atlantans “in the know” about their roots and many more enlightened on the friendly aspects of DNA testing. This year, the industry trailblazers hones its focus on uniting kinships of local test takers; and continuing the dialogue on ancestry tracing through interactive, ancestry-tracing workshops as part of its partnership with Public Broadcasting Atlanta.
“Atlanta is one of our more progressive cities in terms of the passion and excitement for tracing roots through science-based research and technology,” said Gina Paige.
