finding your roots

The Black Harvard’s

J. Harvard March 23, 2012

As a black male with the last name Harvard, I have always heard the corny jokes regarding history of my name. I do not know. It would be really cool to learn where. Not exactly sure where or how to start, no expectations what would turn up. I really look forward to watching “Finding Your Roots,” it seems like there maybe suggestions in the film and the links on this site.
