Road trip: a journey through family history

In this story, two sisters take a road trip through the US South to learn more about their family history. They visit the slavery legacy museum and lynching memorial that opened last year in Montgomery, Alabama and take a trip over the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma. After that, the sisters head East to Savannah, Georgia where they meet their late father’s family and learn about their lineage.
