History Makers' Workshop

"UNTIL THE LION TELLS ITS STORY, EVERY STORY WILL GLORIFY THE HUNTER."

AFRICAN PROVERB
 

WHY THE HISTORY MAKERS' WORKSHOP?

Currently, the majority of American history books are written from a male Eurocentric viewpoint and perpetuate the prejudice and racism that people across the globe are currently fighting to change. As recently as 2015, McGraw Hill, one of the largest distributors of American text books was still describing enslavement as though it was a voluntary immigration. Rather than wait for someone else to correct the problem...OGL created the History Makers Workshop (HMW).

HOW IS THE HISTORY MAKERS' WORKSHOP SOLVING THE PROBLEM?

The HMW is going to publicize the legacies of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) descendants in their first new US history book to be released in 2023. All HMW work is rooted in finding and publicizing ancestral legacies using their Legacy Tracing™ methodology. Each year, a new history book will be published. These new history books expose both the writers and the readers to previously undocumented American history and give agency to everyday BIPOC people to tell their own stories on a global scale.

WHY LEGACY TRACING™?

Legacy Tracing™  incorporates traditional and genetic genealogy to find lost ancestral legacies. BIPOC people have to employ a number of advanced techniques to recover the names and legacies of their ancestors due to the systematic erasure characteristic of both the pre- and post-Civil War era.
