Taneika Blair


My account for the Civil Rights movement came from the history books like many others. It wasn’t until adulthood, that my father said that he and Ezell Blair of the Greensboro four were first cousins. My father endured losing both his parents at an early age; so his linkage to family was severed at that point. I would love to meet the rest of my family, and experience history through their first account tales. Now that I’m a proud mother myself, nothing will be more gratifying than sharing family history from a first account.
