Greater knowledge of family history is associated with a host of positive outcomes for the people, including higher self-esteem, a stronger belief in their capacity to control the future, lower levels of anxiety, fewer behavioral problems, more resilience in the event of hardship, better academic performance and better relationships with their parents.

I’m passionate supporting families and individuals explore their black family history. That's why I'm aiming to raise funding to tour Ancestry Talks in metropolitan areas of the UK (London, Birmingham, Manchester) and beyond.

Although most Ancestry Talks events are free, it can costs up to £300 to arrange. Ancestry talks does not receive funding from mainstream sources.

  • Preparation,
  • Venue hire,
