Designer and author Brandon W. Mosley traced his family tree after watching "Who Do You Think You Are," an NBC and Ancestry.com collaboration that follows popular celebrities as they embark on similar personal journeys. "The Tree That Shades Me" reports genealogical details collected from census records, family stories and other published works. Historical photos of Brandon's maternal ancestors accompany short biographies and quotes, which reveal family secrets, mysteries and long-standing familial principles. While the reader will not find a graphic of the family tree itself, the text will provide a sliver of context to American history through these stories of black Americans, dating as far back as 1772.
