This month’s episode of Speak Easy, the Alexandria Times’ podcast, features an interview with genealogist and investigative researcher Char McCargo Bah.

McCargo Bah sat down with Times Editor Cody Mello-Klein to talk about her work tracing the roots of local African American families, how her work has helped her uncover her own family tree and the value of knowing one’s past. McCargo Bah shared heartwarming, emotional stories that have come out of her work reconnecting people with their past and filling in the gaps of the city’s forgotten or buried African American history.

Speak Easy is available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts and the Times’ website. For more information on McCargo Bah’s work, read the Times’ profile of this Living Legend of Alexandra.
