Lost and Found: A Journey of Self-Identity

2023 students in African American History classes at the Plainfield Academy for the Arts & Advanced Studies students take DNA tests to get a clearer understanding of who they are and from whence they came. Some students have their identities confirmed, while others discover their history is way more complicated than what they believed.
