About Our Genetic Legacy
The legacy, culture and contributions of Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) Americans is missing from the official storyline of the founding of America due to the historical dehumanization and erasure of BIPOC Americans. Our Genetic Legacy (OGL) creates projects that expose and publish lost family legacies of BIPOC Americans in order to diversify, correct and expand the current history of America to include all Americans.
