Exclusive Virtual Event for WABE and ATL PBA Sustainers

The producers of WABE’s award-winning podcast Buried Truths will host a Virtual Behind the Podcast event. The event will provide an insider’s view from Pulitzer Prize-winning author and journalist Hank Klibanoff and his team of Emory University student researchers and writers. They’ll deconstruct the podcast to show you how they gather information to uncover hidden history and reveal a complete and compelling story. When you attend, you can also ask your pressing questions about Buried Truths during a Q&A session.

When you become a new Sustainer or upgrade your monthly Sustaining gift by $1, $2, $5 or more, you’ll receive a special invitation to the Buried Truths: Behind the Podcast Virtual Station Event.

The Black Church

The Black Church Film Screening

Saturday, February 6, 2021
4 p.m.

Join us for a first look at The Black Church, the new documentary from Dr. Henry Louis Gates. Tracing the 400-year-old story of the Black church in America, The Black Church reveals how Black people have worshipped and, through their spiritual journeys, improvised ways to bring their faith traditions from Africa to the New World, while translating them into a form of Christianity that was not only truly their own, but a redemptive force for a nation whose original sin was found in their ancestors’ enslavement across the Middle Passage. After the preview, join the conversation.

$25/month Ticket to Virtual Event and African Ancestry MatriClan DNA Test Kit 

Men and Women – Test your mother’s maternal ancestry.
The MatriClan Test will reveal the African country of origin and ethnic group (tribe) that you share maternal ancestry with during the past
500 – 2,000 years.* This test will not provide percentages of different regions.

Test kits include everything you need to submit your sample, track its progress online, receive digital results and the ultimate DNA security –
complete destruction of your DNA.

Your MatriClan Experience includes:

    • Official digital results from the mitochondrial DNA that men and women inherit exclusively from their mothers
    • Digital Certificate of Ancestry with specific ancestral country and tribe
    • E-book African Ancestry Guide to African History and Cultures
    • Membership in the exclusive African Ancestry Online Community on Facebook

    • Gateway to exploring the traditions, practices, values and beliefs of your paternal ancestor group
    • Eligibility to participate in African Ancestry Family Reunions
    • Ancestry information to share with all of your maternal grandmother’s descendants

* Your maternal ancestry may not be African, despite any percentage data you may have from another company. We cannot guarantee your result will be African. THERE IS A 8% CHANCE THAT YOUR RESULT WILL BE NON-AFRICAN. If your maternal result is not African, we will identify whether it is European, Asian, Middle Eastern or Indigenous American but you will not receive a country or a group. NO REFUNDS for non-African results.
