Paula Madison says: Thank you, Oakland Asian Cultural Center! —
The front page of the Oakland Chinese language newspaper featured coverage of the screening of Finding Samuel Lowe, sponsored by Rep. Barbara Lee on Sunday March 6th! What an honor to my ancestors that our family’s story instills such pride among so many. (And I recognize my Hakka Chinese name in the headline!!)

Thank you, Steven Owyang, for translation:
Headline from World Journal:
非華混血羅笑娜尋根到深圳
“Afro Chinese Mixed Race Luo Xiaona Searches Roots to Shenzhen”
完成母親遺願 “Fulfills mother’s last behest/wish”
找到外祖父的300子孫 “Finds 300 descendants of maternal grandfather”
被補進羅氏族譜 “Restores (name) to Luo/Lowe family genealogy book”
