Our Black Ancestry Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing resources for African American genealogical research, preserving historic materials and properties, and promoting the healing of wounds that are the legacy of slavery. Our primary activity is sponsorship of this Our Black Ancestry (OBA) website and member portal.
“We help you explore family history and culture for the approximately 500,000 people who were kidnapped from Africa — 90% of whom were enslaved in what is now the United States. Upon Emancipation, our ancestors numbered 4 million people. Today, we are a community that is 42 million strong.”
Our Black Ancestry has a blog, and benefits for registered members including connecting with others doing African American research.
