Meet the Road Crew
I have found three talented and inspired people up for an amazing adventure. Each of member of the Road Crew brings a unique interest, talent, and perspective to our journey along with a shared belief in the importance of knowing who you are.
Victoria Massie is a unique combination of aspiring geneticist and anthropologist. She’s a senior a the University of Rochester whose heart – after studying abroad in Malawi and Ghana – belongs to the African continent. Her internship at African Ancestry, as Road Dog #1, is part of her continuing effort to connect her love for Africa with an intrigue for the genome and contemporary issues facing American society. Her senior thesis is a research project focusing on the impact of genetic ancestry testing on African Americans. We encourage you to help with her research by sharing your experience with her. You can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ralston Smith is a gifted storyteller. We were fortunate to have Ralston join the African Ancestry family several years ago when he produced our first marketing video. His vision extends beyond the camera with a strong strategic plan for every project. Ralston will be documenting the Road Tour and posting video to Facebook and YouTube daily. Check out his blog and his website.
Kea Taylor is an amazing photographer. I was so excited when she said that she wanted to join us on the road. We get the benefit of her warm, creative spirit as well as her awesome still photos, which we’ll be posting daily from the Road. We’re all about promoting Black business so, Kea will be autographing copies of her new book, I Still Do – A Celebration of African American Weddings, on the Road Tour too.
