North Carolina Genealogical Society’s 2020 Award for Excellence in Web Presence!

This is a profound honor and further inspiration to keep doing the work of documenting the shoulders we stand on.

Heartfelt thanks to North Carolina Genealogical Society; to Tracy Thompson McPherson for the nomination; to all who take the time to read Black Wide-Awake; to all who have contributed stories, photographs, documents, comments, and questions; and, of course, above all, to the ancestors.
