Heather Andrea Williams, Help Me to Find My People: The Afri

One of the greatest horrors of slavery was the breakup of families. A new book tells another chapter in that story—how separated families attempted to find each other and reunite—before and after the Civil War. And we will learn about some of those efforts from Heather Andrea Williams, author of “Help Me to Find My People: The African American Search for Family Lost in Slavery.”
