I recently met Chris Haley, Director of the Study of the Legacy of Slavery in Maryland. He also was the keynote speaker at the recent annual conference of the Federation of Genealogical Societies, held in Fort Wayne, Indiana. He is a polished speaker, as you can see if you watched the earlier video of the keynote speech, available on this newsletter and at RootsTelevsion.com. He is also the nephew of the late Alex Haley, author of the renowned book, "Roots: The Saga of an American Family, " which was the basis for two TV miniseries.
I met Chris in Fort Wayne, and the Roots Television crew kindly asked their cameraman to record the interview. Chris described his work and also talked a bit about several other topics. He also talked about his own genealogy research. (His famous uncle only researched one-fourth of Chris' ancestry so Chris has been working on the other three-fourths.) You can watch the two of us and learn more about Chris' interesting work at http://www.rootstelevision.com/players/player_conferences3.php?bctid=1155241289&bclid=1415670013.
