“From Appalachia to Africa and Back Again: unexpected connections, genealogical and otherwise”
Faith is a White female American who ended up living in Central Africa for three years, starting when she was 22. She was supposedly ‘teaching’ for the Peace Corps, but she learned a thousand things for every one thing she may have contributed. She’s looking forward to sharing stories with the audience about how geography, genealogy and good intention make us who we are.
