Tomorrow, we talk to the founder of a multimedia project, which asks people with African ancestry to submit photos from their family archives, along with the stories behind them, as a way to uncover and share history. It's called the Digital Diaspora Family Reunion (DDFR) and its goal is to assemble a more complete picture of African American life, as well as American life in general.
We're asking you to do the same. Whether your African American or not, reach into your family photo album and send us a photo that tells a story of your family history. You can scan it in and send it here — or if you have an iPhone, you can use our app and just snap a photo of it. See the photos you've been sending us.
The DDFR is the brainchild of Thomas Allen Harris, a documentary filmmaker, who joins us on Wednesday to talk about the project.
In the meantime, see these photos (below) from Bernice Alexander Bennett, who participated in the project.
