This week, we’re trying something a little different: we team up with our friends at WNYC’s Only Human podcast to find Tracy’s roots. Growing up in Louisville, Kentucky, she always heard that her ancestors were, in her mother’s words, “black, white and American Indian.” But, like many black Americans, she’s found it hard to trace her family heritage with ancestors forced into the American slave trade. So Tracy turns to DNA ancestry tests, and experts on DNA and race, to find out where she comes from.
