Kenyatta Berry will be in conversation about her work and contributions to the 1619 project.

Kenyatta Berry is a contributor to the groundbreaking “1619 Project” published by the New York Times.  She was the 2019 Honorary Chair for Preservation Week and named a “Newsmaker” in American Libraries magazine a publication of the American Library Association. She is an author, attorney, lecturer, professional genealogist and television personality with over 20 years of experience. Kenyatta’s knowledge in the areas of African American Genealogy, Enslaved Ancestral Research and DNA has made her an invaluable “go to” source for information from all parts of the world.

Kenyatta Berry's TV host job on Genealogy Roadshow (PBS) generated enormous buzz surrounding her insight, understanding and expertise by colleagues, genealogy organizations, media and supporters alike. As demand grows for people to learn more about their lineage and DNA, she continues to innovate, transforming the world of genealogy by making it more accessible to the masses.
