Legacy can be defined as a gift, knowledge, culture, property, money and values passed down from one generation to the next. In many families it can be the bridge that ties generations together.
Your family’s stories, lessons and life experiences speak to, culminate and contribute to your family’s unique legacy. The details of that legacy describe the era in which your parents and grandparents lived, the types of homes they lived in, the car they drove, the games they played and the experiences they had.
It's about telling who your family is, where they came from, what values sustained them and why.
The details of your family’s collective legacy can and should be passed to your children, grandchildren and the Black community at large, to serve as a wise guide for future generations.
Our communities are made up of families. Our families are made up of the stories that will serve to educate, motivate, comfort, inspire, mentor, and entertain present and future generations.
It's not just your legacy, it's our history. Submit your family's story today.
