About the Speaker

Angela Y. Walton-Raji is known nationally for her genealogical and historical research, particularly her work on African American genealogy, the Civil War west of the Mississippi, Oklahoma Native Americans, benevolent societies, and 19th-century women. Her book Black Indian Genealogy Research is the only one of its kind focusing on the unique record set reflecting Freedmen found within the Dawes Records. Her most recent book, Freedmen of the Frontier, highlights freed families from Indian Territory who were part of the so-called Five Civilized Tribes. She is a founding member of AfriGeneas.com, host of the weekly genealogy podcast “The African Roots,” and a founding member of the Midwest African American Genealogy Institute.
