If your complexion (or anyone in your family) is similar to that of the copper-colored penny, then your ancestors may have come from the copper-colored races of people the Europeans found in America.  I spent most of my life believing my ancestors came from Africa, because I am African-American.  I learned different once I started researching my ancestry.

The blog posts found here are based on facts I came across during my research.  I am sharing this knowledge to help others become enlightened.  The “Know Better” sections contain information for you to check out yourself.  The “Do Better” sections contain suggested things to do with the information you learn.  Nothing will ever change without action!

Know Better:  If you are not certain your ancestors are from Africa, I encourage you to research your family’s history.  You can start by getting access to census records through ancestry sites on the internet.   Valuable information can also be gained by just interviewing your eldest relatives.

Do Better:  Stop embracing a title just because it was given to you.  Share what you learn with your relatives, so future generations will know the truth about who they are and where they came from.

  1. I am liking the way you are giving just a little bit of information at a time. If you give to much at one setting, most people will not take the time to read what they need to know, or they will become confuses.


  2. Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to research our
    family heritage. I’ll follow you to learn what you learn about us.


  3. Amen! My great uncle was a historian and he’s traced our history back very far. We’ve been here longer than most Europeans. He did not find any connection to Africa either but we had cowboys and indians though.
    Much ❤ for sharing!


  4. Hello, I have been doing some research myself and your blog came up when I googled copper-colored races. Thank you. I now know I am not alone in this journey to knowledge.


  5. I always felt something about me being from Africa a little suspect. Im very much a shiny penny color man and my family is also . I love this info and i am starving for more. Its something very special about all these so called afro american .


    1. More golden nuggets of information can be found by selecting Blog Posts from the menu of this site. Spread the word to help educate people of color in America. We were told our history was lost during slavery, but that’s not true. It was hidden and it’s time for us to find it, reclaim it and reconnect with our rich heritage.


  6. My name is Johnnie McQuarley the Son of OT, Mandy Mcquarley I am a Cherokee Indian Red skin,from Birmingham, Alabama. My Mother told me that I am a Cherokee Indian, and me knowing that I will never be able to be anybody else. I would like my red skin Indian wake up.


    1. Thanks for the comment. In order for copper-colored people in America to wake up, they must first stop letting those (who do not look like them) tell them who they are, then do their own research. It’s great that your family was able to let you know you’re Cherokee!
