DNA:Using Genealogy To Change My (Slave) Last Name at The Caraf Centre
Nware Burge is an independent documentary make and African-American History teacher from Newark, New Jersey.
As we reach 400 years since the slave trade, Burge poses the question: "Should Black people change their white last names in favour of African ones?"
Join us for a screening of his documentary, DNS - Using Genealogy To Change My (Slave) Last Name, in which he explores the idea of using DNA testing to reclaim his African name and heritage stolen during the Trans-Atlantic slave trade. After the screening, you will have the opportunity to discuss this topic with the brother himself.
