The AAHi is hosting its 1st Annual signature event, “My African Identity: From Nostalgia to Authentic Self” – THE REVEAL on Wednesday, November 13, 2019 from 6 to 8pm. Ten Weber State University African American students will participate in the DNA REVEAL to help initiate their one-year student project.
We are inviting Dr. Gina Paige as our keynote speaker who is the leading Black female authority on DNA-based ancestry tracing to help kick off this event. In 2003, Dr. Gina Paige co-founded African Ancestry, Inc. and in doing so, pioneered a new way of tracing African lineages using genetics, and a new marketplace for people of African descent looking to more accurately and reliably trace their roots. Paige is a highly sought-after public speaker and presenter among African American organizations and allied groups of all sizes that are interested in enhancing their programs, events and other offerings. Paige’s passion-infused, approachable style captures, educates and uplifts audiences and in many cases, transforms the way people see themselves. She has taken her customizable presentation to hundreds of businesses, community/civic events, faith-based communities and educational groups across the U.S. and the globe.
