Special report with NEWSCHANNEL 13's elaine houston
February is “Black History Month,” but when it comes to discovering their family history, some African Americans run into a roadblock because of slavery in the United States. NewsChannel 13's Elaine Houston has been wondering about her ancestors who were slaves and the impact they made on her family. Houston says she has lived a great life, traveled the world, wrote a book, produced documentaries, but she has never known who she really is -- that is, until now. Click here for the full story.
