Tracing Roots Screenings and Guide in the Works

Over the past months we've shared Tracing Roots at community screenings, in theaters, at public libraries,  museums, middle and high schools and film festivals from Northern California to Fairbanks, Alaska. It has and continues to be a great journey.
