February 23, 2014 - It's a celebration of black history month and a celebration of cultures at the Getting to the Root of our Family event at the First United Methodist Church in Erie.

The event highlighted a promising past with hopes of building a promising future.

A sold out event, the original live documentary features the stories of how many cultures came to be and where they stand today with interesting stories from people of various ethnicities and religious beliefs.

To be a part of this program -- one that is not only showcasing our cultural differences but also highlighting our similarities -- is an experience those involved say is important in strengthening our community.
