This week Kenyatta D. Berry, author, and host of The Genealogy Roadshow is joined by James R. Morgan III.

James is a fascinating individual and has many accolades under his belt: historian, genealogist, and award-winning author of The Lost Empire: Black Freemasonry in the Old West. James is also a Prince Hall Freemason, and  Honorary Fellow and Life Member of the Phylaxis Research Society. James has worked to bring awareness to forgotten Black stories, as well as working through his own family history.

In this episode, James and Kenyatta discuss what being a Prince Hall Freemason means, how he works as a historian, and his current dedication to working to find headstones and bring respect to a Black cemetery that was desecrated.
