Throughout Shahara’s life, she was never able to track down her African roots. One day, she watched a PBS program called Finding Your Roots. The program inspired Shahara to get a DNA and discovered she was of Ghanaian descent. She continues to inspire others by writing books and teaching younger generations the importance of knowing where you came from.
