HerCsuite™ Radio We are Women Who Make History with Dominique Luster
There is power in knowing someone’s name. Feel inspired from this conversation to find out the name of all of your grandmothers. Gain a new understanding of your DNA and how we carry a piece of each grandmother with us. Knowing your grandmother’s names gets more difficult as you move up the family tree, and it’s more challenging with women, whose names are changed in public records. Wouldn’t it be amazing to know who your fifth grandmother was and the details of her life? Beyond that “amazing” factor, professional researcher, archivist, and storyteller Dominique Luster believes that we can draw strength from the women who came before us just by knowing their names and what they did in their lifetime. Brought up in a family that told stories, Dominique shares her gift to the world by helping people discover the stories of marginalized communities that have been suppressed, oppressed, erased, or forgotten Hear what it was like for Dominique to learn about her 5th grandmother Charity, who was born enslaved but managed to find her children and create a life with them. For Dominique, learning about her grandmothers and how we carry a piece of their DNA with us from generation to generation has helped her see the world differently.
