    Hello my name is Cedrick White and I am African American. In 2007 I found out through ancestry dna testing my direct maternal ancestry is Yoruba. I am having a ball getting to know my people. I love the arts, almost every aspect. You did a great job, I really love the pic of the bride arranging the cap on the grooms head. What a graceful pic!! Love it!!!
