Interracial Marriage and Family is profiling large families with (six or more children). Surprisingly, there are quite a few of them. Our third family in the series is the Torres family. Salvador Torres was born in Mexico. His wife Drina is African-American. Drina Torres shares her story. Drina and Salvador met in school and hit it off.
Just how does a black American matriarch set roots In New Zealand? American slavery left an unwitting legacy on most of us descended from Africans. The sad thing is that most of us don’t know our history and for those of us who can trace back our ancestry, we are stopped for the most part at the slave owner. For instance, I traced my family back seven generations. It wasn’t a surprise where my family got its name Murrell as it was the name of the man who purchased my progenitors. He came from Ireland back in 1799.
