Author Notes on Episode 16 – Genealogy or digging at these roots

Epiosde 30 – Food, family and the poetry of how history repeats As the Incense Burns 🔥

“… It’s gonna be some of our own that will get in yo’ way, just remember who you is. There is a storm coming… our people gonna need what
we got to give you …”

Word from the Elders…
My Grandmother and Great Uncle were stewards of our history… and they handed the torch to me with a mandate to find the others.

And I obeyed.

Take a listen to as I reflect on the winding path… one that wasn’t supposed to be.
