Get transported back in time to discover the untold stories and roots of a railroad town called Clinton, in South Carolina...as told by our guest in this episode, Albert "Vision" Williams.
A passionate historian, ancestry hobbyist, and amazing artist, Albert brought Clinton to life in our imaginations, revealing the untold stories of its history through the lens of his family's legacy. A legacy that we share to an extent because he also happens to be a cousin that I discovered via ancestry.com.
Through heart-warming memories of his childhood, poignantly painful stories of loss, and spine-tingling stories of new ancestral discoveries, Albert in his deeply informed and passionate style painted a beautiful tapestry of the stories of the African-American community whose roots can be traced all the way back to the start of the slave trade route in West Africa.
Please be warned that some of the stories shared in this episode may be quite triggering for some listeners.
