Our stories. Our voices.

THE POWER TO TELL AND PRESERVE OUR COLLECTIVE HISTORY

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.

Our Projects

Correcting the published history of America to include ALL Americans is the mission of OGL. The many contributions of BIPOC Americans have been ignored and their historical family legacies have been lost; our projects focus on discovering and publishing these lost legacies.

Include your family legacy in new American history books.
