I'm so glad we've kept in touch. Thank you so much for your time. Well it's great to be back and right out of the gate. I wanna give people a little bit of marketing one. Oh one there's a term called mental real estate and it was taught to me from someone in orange county who is one of the original madge. Nears tony baxter And what he shared with me was the term mental real estate. And i said tony what is that. He said it's when you come up with something that's familiar. And then you twist it you own more mental real estate. He said for instance. Pirates of the caribbean owns the word. Pirates in the minds of kids because when kids think of pirates they think of pirates of the caribbean disney owns pirates. And i was thinking of that because my book talking to crazy has a certain amount of mental real estate. When i told people i was going to write about that and it wasn't about mental illness it was about dealing with people that drive us crazy. They all they all said. I need that book today for today. So that had met louis gate but i thought that was pretty good mental real estate. Yeah yeah it is and actually this leads right into the first thing i wanted to ask you. Is this word crazy. And that's not a word that sometimes is thought of as the most politically correct word. You're a psychiatrist though. So i know you've given a lot of thought to use this word in the title when you say crazy. What do you mean you know. I got a lot of blowback and i still have mixed feelings because i love my profession. I love the people who work in mental health. It's a it's a tough go and the world needs it more than ever and people would come to me in my profession and they'd say how can you use the word talking too crazy. We already have a stigma. How dare you do that. I said did you read the book. They said no. I said it's really a book about how to deal with people who drive you crazy. The people the impossible the irrational people in your life. It's not about mental illness. It's about how people drive you crazy and the title actually will get people to hopefully read the book because the book is really about empathizing with them so that you can disarm the way. They're being difficult with you. Indeed and as i think about the book and the advice you give and also the point you make that we all can be irrational right. It's easy to look at the other person and say okay. This person's been really irrational in this situation or is irrational often and yet of course we all step into that and i. I love the example. You given the book about someone giving you advice along time ago about what to do with a dog sinks its teeth into your hand which have share that if a dog sinks its teeth into your hand and you try to pull your hand out it will sink. Its teeth deeper. But if instead you push your hand into the dog's mouth it will start to choke in gag and it will let go which leads me to a little anecdote that at the beginning of the book that people found fascinating. Can i share that one. That was when. I had a little incident with road rage. Sure please so. I was having an. It's a little bit like pushing your hand into the dog's mouth. So i was having one of those days where everything. I did backfired. I mean i couldn't do anything right. And i'm driving in southern california. That's first mistake. That was a mistake. That's right so i'm driving from actually the westside of los angeles into the san fernando valley. You probably know that stretch of road. Yeah and And it's too crowded on the highway. There called the four. Oh five so. I'm taking a powell. Road called sepulveda's boulevard. So i'm i had a terrible day in his i'm driving. I cut off someone in a pickup truck with his wife any haunted horn and i just sort of wave and i cut him off again. Oh no i'm just so out of it and he pulls up he pulls up in front of me and he stops and i'm so out of it. I just stopped behind him. And this big six foot six. Probably you know just a strong surfer dude guy. He comes out and before he comes out. I can see his wife is telling them not to get out of the car. And i'm just staring at them because i'm having a terrible day. And so finally he gets out of the car he comes over and he bangs on my window and i must not have been rational but i must have pretty good instincts and i lower the window. I mean who would lower window to someone is banging on your window and he says to me you cut me off twice. Nobody cuts me off and you cut me off twice. I'm gonna show you never to cut me off again. And then i looked at him. And i said do you ever have one of those days where everything you do backfires. I mean everything in you hoping to run into the person who will put you out of your misery. Are you the guy. He said what i said. Yeah i don't cut people off in traffic. I don't cut people off in traffic twice i. I'm just having the worst day and nothing's going right in. Are you the guy who's going to put me out of my misery..

"Will see over the course of this episode but i know that all of us think the beer summit is this sort of like sneaky really important moment in the obama presidency. I'm glad we're finally getting to it. kelly where do you start with the sort of incident itself crowley and gates on this doorstep. The neighbors calling the cops. What else do you feel like is important to know about that moment. And then we'll get to the obama white house invitation. Well henry louis gates. It said that he was returning from a major tip. He had just got back into the country from china. So i can imagine. He is jet lagged. He is weary and he has a lost or misplaced his keys so he's trying to get into his home And has has has his driver help him to try to break into his own house And in that process neighbor sees. What's going on. Look suspicious to her so she called the cops and when the cops show up. I think henry louis gates was a bit miffed. If you will that someone would be questioning him about breaking into his own home. I'm sure he said. Do you know who i am harvard for. I'm sure that was part of the exchange But it's also sort of interesting. Because henry louis gates junior also walks with the came. He has a physical disability. And so the idea that he would be breaking into a home himself just did not make sense. And i'm sure a cursory look into the home could also showed you pictures of himself in the house in which he lived. There were a lot of clues contact clones. That would have told you that maybe this is all a misunderstanding but before it could get to that place it escalated and here. We have the beer

"Family tree and watch the nuts fall out. It is great to have you along a loaded show with some great guest today. We're gonna be talking to Sonny Morton. Coming up in about 10 minutes or so. Sonny has written a great article for Family Tree magazine talking about how to map out your research year month by month because whether it's certain times of the year lends itself to certain types of things, so we'll go through all of that. Plus, Russell Shorto was here on the show. Little later on. Russell is a well known historical writer. And you've got to hear about the discovery made about his own family and the book he's written about his grandfather and the mob. Yeah. Dr. Henry Louis Gates is back this week, talking about the latest episode of Finding your Roots on PBS. And, Of course, Right now, it's time to head out to Boston, Massachusetts and talk to my good friend David Allen Lambert. The chief genealogists of the New England Historic Genealogical, citing American ancestors dot org's Hello, David. Hello, sir. How are you doing today? I am doing fine. In fact, making lots of discoveries this past week. How about you? I didn't same and I can tell you. I've got a new connect human. My war of 18 12 veteran. I stumble upon Henry Henry. Poor. I think it was right. Yeah, I no longer have just poor relations. I started to do some research because I'm trying to be the proprietor of his cemetery plot. They want me to find all the living descendants of his son in law. Albert Griswald died in 18 95. So I figured that out track down his Kids and grandkids that teller etcetera. I stumble upon one and in the bitch worry. It says he was a brigadier general under Jimmy Doolittle and the Pacific. And, Of course, many of you may have heard of Doolittle's Raiders. If you saw the Pearl Harbor you see that raid on Tokyo so he was tied in with too little. Not that he was on the raid, but the best part of it is who this guy's daughter is. Her name is Claire Griswald. Might not mean anything until I tell you that she was Sydney. Paul. Ex wife. No. And yeah. So Sydney Pollack in her had three Children. Two daughters so alive us on the past. One of the daughters is married The hutch Parker Hutch. Parker is the director of the X Men Serious so I can connect War of 18 12 2 X men is really, really strange. And I found this past week from a friend of mine that there's more information coming in on my pirate ancestor. And yes, and we'll we'll share more of that in the weeks to come, but really fun stuff. I love making new discoveries. Well, let's get on with our family. He stole our news today a day. Where do you want to start? Well, I thought we would start with talking about caps and shoes and houses. Everybody probably has a shoe in their house, right? Yeah, of course. Usually it's on your floor well in Nova Scotia. Should they're finding that people would put them in for luck in walls. Yes, they would take old shoes and put them in the walls. This is what they're finding in Katie in homes up in no disco Sha. And strange things embedded into the walls of your house wasn't the first time I Fergus When I was over in Scotland. They talk about variety of houses where they find the skeletal remains of house caps placed into the walls and what? Wait a minute So they put the living cat behind the walls. And then the cat dies back there, right. Apparently, they would take the caps and put them into the walls during construction, too. Fair off any band spirits. What was told to me when I went on a house tour out in Edinburgh? That's crazy. That is, it's you know, my grandfather and his sons were all builders in Oregon. And so Grandpa would often buy up land not too far from his home in Albany, Oregon. The boys would go over with him and they build these houses and tournament, Selim and recently someone who lives in one of those homes was doing a remodel and found a piece of framing that my uncle had written his name on and put a date on. I think I was 1935. They actually removed that segment and presented it to my cousin who still lives on the property of my grandfather's That crazy That's amazing. Well, New England homes occasionally over the threshold of the doorway, you would find a silver dollar or gold coin that so anytime anyone was demolishing houses Would always want to knock away that part to see what was up there. And I've known a couple of contractors who found silver dollars. And in fact, one case of gold coin crazy. Wow. Yeah, You just never know what's in the walls. Maybe it's just not the baseball card jealous when your kids down the cracks. You know, History is always fascinating. But I think the ancient history really fascinates me the most stellar ancestors and going back to ancient Egypt. Uncovering many remains in Sequoia, basically a cemetery. They recently found 50 coffins, including a scroll of the book of the Dead. That was 13 ft. Long on papyrus Book of the Dead was basically spells directing the dead to navigate the underworld in ancient Egypt. Fascinating stuff. Wow. Well, this is our first show since the inauguration, And when I was watching it, I saw Dan Quayle. Who, of course, is the elder states them? Jimmy Carter and Roslyn weren't there, but you've met a few presidents in your day. Haven't you actually met quail once, But I've met four presidents have met presidents from both parties. And then I figured out I'm related to 10. And that's kind of the fun. Part of genealogy is where you figure out these ties, and I know because you're from the New England area. Also, you have a You have an amazing connection to a president? Yeah. Good. Old honest. Abe. Yeah. Abraham Lincoln's ancestry were Gilman is also mine. So I can say that when I visited him in Springfield, Illinois, this tomb I was visiting family and that amazing in the relationship is what? Uh, probably like his fifth great grandfather and my 10th. Great grandfather. Something like that. Yeah. Put it down on paper right off the top of my head. I don't recall, but it is a shared ancestor from Hingham, Massachusetts. Lincoln's came from. That's amazing that it's a great time. And what fun?.

"But despite the complicated nature where the brutal nature of the paternity event. People still want to know who I came from what happened to them. What my cousins look like. Because you're carrying DNA from that side of the family tree. An alternate leads leads to a great deal of healing and reconciliation. Only what time it the case of Jeffrey Cannon that we contacted to wipe descendants to descendants of a white man who possibly could be jeffries great-great-grandfather and both of them said what man wouldn't talk to us at the sister. She talked to me. She said she'd seen the show. She was an elderly. We set more. Dvd's Tolga Oprah bit in the show. Man I was at all the all the do what you gotta do. Yep and then I called her and she said No. I've decided I'm not going to do it. And I said why she said it would bear as my daddy and I was thinking your Dan. I don't care she goes no. I'm not going to do so. I said wealth and I respect that you ever change your mind Let me know but you know what now We can build family trees from even if the DNA site it says your fourth or fifth or sixth cousin with enough work we could construct family trees by the identifies now of your ancestors more easily than we could back. When I did Geoffrey Canada in fact with me we've known for years and my whole life up sixty nine years old. We've known that Jane Gates of my Great Great Grandmother. I ever picture upstairs if my house in Harvard Square right now and we have a family history room and we have pictures of my ancestors very blessed that I have great records moved. You know by now I said Yeah. I just said for three sets of black people who were free by fourth grade grandparents and they lived in the same county in Virginia which is now West Virginia thirty miles from where I live. Wow we have a mandate continuity and family land we inherited from when we set about fourth grandparents were free in eighteen twenty three by white men. They may ramp meter. He gave him a thousand acres of land. And by Bruce and cousin. Still some of that land. You know Japan's abandoned stability very unusual. American ask you this. Because sometimes it's easier to put the dots together for our white ancestors because they have better records. Yep absolutely I get video. FOR LEAD SPONSOR ANCESTRY DOT com. It was about tips for Doing an ancestry and about African American ancestry because my job is to help everybody find their roots and especially like people of course am a professor of African and African American Studies. But I I'm very proud of the fact. That many of our guests are Ashkenazi. Jewish people from Eastern Europe and chasing their ancestors is just as hard as anything African American ancestors. It's because of the all the anti-semitism and records were destroyed they have been digitized et. Cetera ET CETERA. But here's what we do. You the trick. Is you start with yourself? And then you work backwards to be eighteen seventy cents and everybody's eighteen sentence for the first time everybody black because the census only recorded the names of free people sixty nine ninety percent of our ancestors. Were enslaved so they weren't in the census by the the ten percent of our ancestors were free and they were in the they were in the sense and so if you're lucky enough to be descended from supplement it was free. It's easy to trace you your and sets you back at slavery. So what do we do for the people ninety percent of us? Whose emphasis were enslaved. Well let's say you find out that your ancestor in the hypothetically call Michael Smith Seventy Michael Smith is is living in Challah County Mississippi. Will you go back? And he's thirty years old at. He's your great great grandfather. You go back to the eighteen sixty census and look for any white person who owned slaves whose last name was Smith and then there was a separate schedule. Cup of slave schedule. A The owned male flavor was twenty years old. Why did he did? Chances? Are that that's your ancestor. The look in in this White Man and Mr Mr Bit. Suspense is at state records. Because if he had a will he would say I leave my play Michael to my daughter married or he wouldn't have to list of names of slaves when he paid taxes or other legal Other legal documents and so the key to finding the ancestry with enslaved African American is finding the White Family. Wow on them and then looking for their first name in their records and if you're an and be been very fortunate it being able to do this many times since we started. What's the male fighting your route in two thousand five.

"Here's what amazing things revealed by DNA. American daddy get dented. The average African American is twenty four percent. White be average. African Americans is twenty four percent white. And that's because of slavery and my other hand. The every African American is only zero point. Eight percent native American American at every African American ever met the twenty four percent Asian American. Okay now talked about that. We've just before. Why do so many black people believe that they descendants of Native Americans? I would think that that would be regional. Well it because I have Chris. Rock that when we started this series. Remember I just did Black guess it was called. African American lives in African American lives two. I did a fabulous interview with Chris. Rock in which he broke down cried because we showed him that his great great grandfather Julius Caesar Tenement was thing whether they elected to the South Carolina legislature in the reconstruction government and. He had no idea he told me when he collected himself. I go why you know. I'm wondering why he was crying. He said that he had wanted to be a politician. Had gone to his mother when he was twelve and his mother and said of the system on that black men become politicians and no he. He gave up that ambition family treat. There was A politician so that there are amazing stories buried on your family tree so when he said I have made American insist I go not much. Here's why do you think all of our brothers and sisters Maximize native American history and minimize our European ancestry. And he said well because European ancestry by enlarge statement rape or CAJOLE SEXUALITY. What during slavery and. So who wants to think about that? It's it's easier to fantasize that your ancestor ran away from slavery over the hill. The native Americans welcomed warmly and said hey you wanNA marry my daughter. You know chief. It's easier to have that fantasy than confront the reality of rape during slavery. The majority of our white ancestry entered our genome..

The long-awaited Star Wars land called galaxy's edge is about to open on may thirty first at Disneyland and August twenty ninth at Disney World in Orlando. Disney likes to call the fourteen acre park within a park the new land. It centers around the black spire outpost were good and evil. Meet in the form of the characters from the Heroux resistance and the dangerous. I order the attraction is immersive in one ride fans will be able to pilot the millennium falcon starship through the galaxy on the rise of the resistance, which will open some months down the road. You'll be in a simulated battle the intention to make you feel like a member of the resistance. Fighting off the first order in surviving to become a hero galaxy's edge is one of the most highly anticipated theme park openings ever and Disney's been planning for a crush of fans from day one. That means your visit to the black spire outpost will be short one through late June. Visitors will have to make reservations for four hour. Time slots Disney's trying to manage traffic so visiting a galaxy far far away is a good experience not misery for the last few weeks. Only Disney hotel customers have been able to get those reservations. But you better love Star Wars. Those rooms will set you back up to seven hundred sixty dollars a night as the LA times notes that's close to two hundred dollars per Star Wars, our even before you buy Disneyland. Tickets on Thursday, though, Disney began accepting reservation requests from anyone not just hotel goers, given the anti that Disney's built up for Star Wars land. It would. Easy to assume that it's the only attraction around hardly all of Florida's. Big theme. Parks are introducing new attractions this summer jumping in well before galaxy's edge opens up at DisneyWorld on June thirteenth, the wildly popular Harry Potter attraction at Comcast's universal. Orlando is getting a new roller coaster Hagrid magical creatures motorbike adventure in case, you don't know those motorbikes fly. So while one big question is will I be able to get a reservation to galaxies edge. Another bigger question for theme park leaders might be will universal siphon-off family's theme park.

"louis gate" Discussed on News-Talk 1400 The Patriot

"There is an article written by Henry Louis gates hard to get more pro Obama than here. Louis gates. Louis gates, the professor of African American studies at Harvard. He's the one who was in his house when he had come back from vacation and forgot his dorky. He and the cabdriver broke into his own house. Neighbor saw called the Cambridge police came arrived saw gate in the house politely from the come out show. ID gates resented it because it was his own home. Cut the attitude and basically told the call told the call cop where you could stick it and recall this led to that beer summit because Obama famously said the Cambridge police acted stupidly when in fact, the they acted perfectly properly in accordance with policy it with gates who mouthed off and Obama realize he messed up, and that's when he had the beer summit. So that's that's Henry Louis gates. You. Can't get more. Pro Obama pro democrat party than he lose games. Okay. He wrote a piece in the New York Times. Nine years ago. Called ending the slavery blame game. And for all these Democrats Bernie Sanders now says should be studying reparations, you know, comma, Harris at the same thing. Baidoa works is same thing of your coffee Cortez says the same thing. Keep that in mind is a redo excerpt from this article, which we put up on Larry elder dot com called ending the slavery blame game. Quote. Well, we are all familiar with the role played by the United States and the European colonial powers like Britain, France, Holland, Portugal, and Spain there is very little discussion of the role Africans themselves played and that role. It turns out was a considerable one especially for the slave trading. Kingdoms of western and central Africa. He's many of them for centuries, Europeans and Africa kept close to their military and trading posts on the coast. How did slaves make it to those coastal forts this story in John Thornton, and Linda Heywood of be you estimate that ninety percent of those ship to the new world or enslaved by Africans and then sold to European traders Mary Pete that again. Historians. John Thornton and Linda Heywood of Boston University estimate that ninety percent of those ship to the new world. We're in slave by Africans and then sold to European Slater's. Henry Louis gates continues. The sad truth is that without without complex business partnerships between African elites and European traders and commercial agents, the slave trade. The new euro to the new world would have been impossible at least on the scale it occurred. Let me pause right here. Those of you certain age probably saw the program called roots. Aired on ABC four or five nights in a row. And the protagonists of roots with Kunda contain. And they picked him walking down the road in Africa looking for wood to build a drum for sister and out from a tree with a net comes a white man or white, man. I can't really remember. How many there were who grabbed him put him in this net and told him into the ship where he was been shipped to the new world? Think about how any fishing that is think about how time consuming that would be wait until somebody walks by and then jump behind a tree and grabbing one at a time. Are you kidding me? But that was how they portrayed it giving. You the impression it was just white people who snatched blacks and blacks had absolutely no role whatsoever in the slave trade. It was bull. Back to him. Louis gates advocates reparations for the descendants of those slave generally ignore. This untidy problem of the significant role that Africans played in the trade choosing. To believe the romanticized version that our ancestors were all kidnapped unawares by evil. White men like Khuda contained in roots. The truth, however is much more complex. Slavery was a business highly organized and lucrative for European buyers and African sellers alike. I'm skipping, quote, the African role in the slave trade with fully understood and openly acknowledged by many African Americans even before the civil war for Frederick Douglass. It was an argument against we patriots games for the free slaves. He said, why should the slaves? Go back to the west coast of Africa to the same place whose leaders sent them into slavery. So he wasn't down with having blacks. Go back to Africa. He thought that was foolish. Quote, our new understanding back to him. Louis gates of the scope of the African involvement in the slave trade is not historical guesswork, thanks to the trans African slave trade database directly by the historian, David L types of Emory University. We now know the ports from which more than four hundred and fifty thousand of African ancestors was shipped out to what is now the United States the database have records of twelve point five million people shipped to all parts of the new world from fifteen forty two eighteen eighty six speaking of which gates also said this. Between fifteen twenty five and eighteen sixty six according to that database twelve point five million Africans were shipped to the new world. Ten point seven million survived disembarking North America, the Caribbean and South America. And how many of these ten point seven million Africans were shipped directly to North America. Only about three hundred eight thousand. That's right. A tiny percentage in of quote. Don't get me started on the slave trade. Which began longer lasted longer and ship. More blacks out of Africa to the Middle East and South America than European slavers shipped to North America. He also says well, some people say well, the blacks, the chief didn't realize how cruel it was nonsense. He says many elites actually traveled on slave ships to go to Europe to educate it. They were fully aware of the conditions in which Africans were being kept. There were fully aware of what happened to them when they ultimately got to their places of destination. So the idea that well, they didn't realize how cruel the Europeans would be how cruel the Lakers would be. It's a lie now, given this remarkably messy history, he writes, the problem with reparations. Might be from whom with AB extracted into quote. No kidding. I'm Larry elder. Did you say? What? Larry elder, all true. All devastating. With our news. I'm Keith Peterson Washington declaring our country is full President Trump on Friday said the US immigration system was overburdened and legal crossings must be stopped as inspected to refurbish section of fencing at the Mexican border.

"Q E D. This is fresh air. I'm Dave Davies infra Terry gross as we honor the memory of Dr Martin Luther King today. We're going to listen to an interview Terry recorded with historian Henry Louis gates, the new season of his TV series. Finding your roots is now showing on PBS in the show. Notable guests discover their family roots based on genealogical research and DNA results. This kind of research has been especially important for African Americans whose ancestors had their names and families taken away when they were enslaved one episode this season explores gates own DNA and family history. Professor gates is the director of the Hutchins center for African and African American research at Harvard and has produced numerous books and documentaries about African American history. Terry spoke to Henry Louis gates in front of an audience last may when he was in Philadelphia to receive WHYY's annual lifelong learning. Thank you. Because you talk to everybody about their genealogy. I wanted to talk with you about yours, and what you've learned about yourself and the larger meaning of what you've learned about yourself. And I want to start with the person who got you started engineer allergy. It was really like the photograph of her of your great. Great aunt, Jane gates, and you regret grandma. Great grandma. Thank you. So I wanna read something that you wrote about her, and you got this from the eighteen seventy census. The Jane gates, h fifty one female, mulatto laundries and nurse owns real estate. Valued at fourteen hundred dollars born in Maryland cannot read or write now she was born in eighteen nineteen died in eighteen eighty eight or nine years old when you found her picture and got this information from the eighteen seventy cents so reading this. The. She'd been a slave the first question that comes to my mind. And I don't know if it was the first question that Cam to yours was wishy raped by the man who owned her. I can't believe you asked this question. Because is that you personal. It's a horrible way to start the average African American the average African American is twenty four percent European. Now think about that. And most DNA companies in the United States will tell you that they have never tested an African American who is one hundred percent from sub Saharan Africa. This isn't called an admixture test it measures your ancestry back five hundred years approximately. So what that means is that it's the percentage of a perfect family tree. What percent would be of from sub-saharan Africa? What percent would be from Europe percent would be native American African loved the joke about this African Americans all think that they are descended from a native American and every American has less than one percent native American ancestry, but they have twenty four percent European ancestry. So where's I come from? It comes from slavery. Was this an equal sexual relationship? Of course, not. So obviously rape or best cajoled sexuality was the cause. But there are exceptions. When I did Morgan Freeman. Family tree. Obvious through his DNA that he was descended from a white man who was an oversee on a plantation in Mississippi, and we knew the name of his great great grandmother in the name of this white man, so overseer slave plantation rape. Right. Except in the next scene. I showed him their headstones. They were very next to each other as soon as the civil war ended. They became common-law husband and wife, which was illegal Mississippi. They live together they had kids in their very next to each other. So let's get back to you, Greg, Greg. Greg. So you assume it was not a consensual relationship, but she managed to own her own home five years after being freed from slave for which he paid cash. So how do you do that? Because of this white man, you don't get fourteen hundred dollars by saving your nickels and dimes slave, right? Yeah. So obviously somebody gave her that money. She paid cash for that house in what was largely a white neighborhood and our family my cousin. Johnny gates still on said house to this day. It was just put me historic register in Maryland in that copay. But I saw that photograph and read her obituary on the day that we buried my father's father Edward Saint Lawrence gates, and the obituary said died disdain Cumberland, Maryland, January six eighteen eighty eight. Jane gates, an estimable colored woman and that night, and then daddy showed my brother and me. Dr Paul gates now chief of dentistry Bronx Lebanon hospital. Very impressive.

"Research at Harvard and has produced numerous books and documentaries about African American history. Terry spoke to Henry Louis gates in front of an audience last may when he was in Philadelphia to receive WHYY's annual lifelong learning. Because you talked to everybody about their genealogy. I wanted to talk with you about yours, and what you learned about yourself and the larger meaning of what you've learned about yourself. I don't want to start with the person who got you started engineer allergy. It was really it's like the photograph of her of your great. Great aunt, Jane gates, and you regret grandma. Great grandma. Yeah. Thank you. So I wanna read something that you wrote about her and you got this from the eighteen seventy cents. The Jane gates, h fifty one female mulatto laundry and nurse owns real estate valued at fourteen hundred dollars born in Maryland cannot read or write now she was born in eighteen nineteen died in eighteen eighty eight or nine years old when you found her picture and got this information from the eighteen seventy census so reading this Milwaukee. Oh, she'd been a slave the first question that comes to my mind. And I don't know if it was the first question that Cam to yours was wishy raped by the man who owned her. I can't believe you asked this question. Because is that you personal. It's a horrible way to start the average African American the average African American is twenty four percent European.
