How did we get here? This a simple, yet multi-layered question. How did we (American-Africans) get here (to the Caribbean Islands, North and South America)? Our ancestors arrived in America in the 1400s as part of European exploration teams. They also worked as indentured servants for a while. When Europeans labeled themselves as “white” and Africans as “slaves” for life something in this country went very wrong. Of One Blood explores how American-Africans are still figuring out how we got here mentally, socially, emotionally, and financially.
