is president of the OBA Foundation. She is a descendant of the HAIRSTON family, one of the largest slaveholding families in American history. Over a 200 year period, her ancestors enslaved more than 10,000 people on 42 plantations in three states. Diana is dedicated to “making things right” by making her family records (and those of others) available to help African American researchers discover their roots. She too has been trained in STAR and maintains the Hairston Family Genealogy
