Ancestor Research in History Class: Helping youth uncover untold histories The Sea Change Podcast

    • Education

We are thrilled to have Dana Saxon on the podcast. She is an extraordinary educator with an inspiring story and mission. We have wanted to have Dana on for awhile now and we thought that February would be a perfect time. We celebrate black history month with Dana as we explore what it means for all young people to discover their roots and in particular how powerful it can be for young people who descended from the survivors of slavery. 

Dana Saxon is the Founder & Executive Director of Ancestors unKnown, an education social enterprise with projects in the U.S., U.K., and the Netherlands. Ancestors unKnown provides schools, nonprofit organizations, universities, and corporations with curriculum and workshops related to family history research and other untold histories. After spending nearly 10 years in the education nonprofit sector in the U.S., Dana moved to the Netherlands in 2011 to study the significance of family history research among people in the African diaspora who descend from survivors of slavery. Since then, she’s traveled to multiple cities on multiple continents, introducing new audiences to some of the world’s untold histories and the power of family history research. Dana currently lives in Bristol, U.K., where she's planning to expand the reach and impact of Ancestors unKnown.
