This Week's Pod Cast


Hello and welcome back to the African Roots Podcast! My name is Angela Walton-Raji and you can reach me at

Well I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and is enjoying the holiday weekend with loved ones. My message is short this week—take some time with friends and family to make new memories as well as enjoy old memories with family elders.

This is the time to save old stories, collect new recipes, and appreciate the treasures in the family that come from hearing old tales, looking at old photos once again, but with a new eye. Listen one more time to the story of how the family moved from the old homestead, and ask new questions and by all means, please remember to tell that same story to the next generation.

Stay safe, make this holiday yours and embrace this special time! Since things have slowed down, this is a great time to take note of the many things that we have learned, and to make plans for more opportunities in the coming year as well.

In the meantime—enjoy those left overs (sometimes better than they were the day before) take some pictures, and have that extra piece of pie—it’s ok. You have earned this time with your family, so enjoy!

I suspect that many of you may have joined the shoppers today, remember it is the thought that counts more than the price of the gift.

Give yourself, and appreciate those around you.
In the meantime, keep doing what you do—keep researching, keep documenting, and please keep sharing, what you find!
