*Note* The intention of this video is to share my results as they pertain to my African lineage as a decedent of slaves here in North America. I am proud to be African, and not in any way disappointed in my results. I made a few annotations to the video to highlight the increase in my African DNA Result percentage as well as to clear up my poor choice in a word that was used. I used”Abnormally High” as descriptor in this video. The wording should have been “Unusually High” to signify the fact that compared to other African Americans I had less “other” admixture in my family. This is a GOOD thing as it allows me to connect to culture, link back to my African Origin easier, etc. It also shows that my family was not in the U.S. comparatively as long as other Africans, thus there was less opportunity for race mixing. This too has been great being that we are able to, through research, pinpoint more specific information such as the places my ancestors were born here in the states as well as what ship they came in on, etc. I hope this video is an encouraging one that will motivate other African Americans to have their DNA tests done and to learn about their African history as I am currently doing. As African Americans, we have to reclaim all of our history and culture. Start your journey today, and motivate others to look back on what made you who you are today! Thanks for watching!
