Willard Library is collaborating with the Sojourner Truth Institute of Battle Creek to present Kenyatta D. Berry, host of PBS’s Genealogy Roadshow, for a genealogy program on Feb. 15 in honor of Black History Month. Berry is a lawyer with more than 20 years of experience in genealogical research and writing. A native of Detroit, Berry focuses on African-American genealogy, slave ancestral research, and the use of DNA. Her specialty is tracing the roots of African-Americans to slavery days, helping them break through what she calls the “1870 brick wall,” referring to the first federal Census during which former slaves were enumerated.
