As a young White girl in Ohio, Rachel Jamison had imagined what life was like for her pioneer ancestors, and she peppered her grandparents with questions about her past. Decades later, she and her family discovered a connection to a prominent early American Black intellectual and met their living Black relatives. The full story of her past had been hiding in plain sight. Guest: Rachel Jamison Webster, author of "Benjamin Banneker and Us: Eleven Generations of an American Family"
