DeLanna Studi's dream project

Actress DeLanna Studi is working on her dream project--namely:

Trail of Tears Road Trip: And So We Walked

A father/daughter journey along the Trail of Tears, retracing the footsteps of their family.As a Cherokee citizen, actress and writer, I have always wanted to travel in my ancestors’ footsteps along the Trail of Tears and find a way to share this legacy and the impact it has on all of us. This June, my father and I will travel the Northern Route collecting stories and insights of the communities along the way. It’s a tale about a road trip, family, heritage, and an inside perspective on a forgotten part of our shared American history.You can read more about the trip, and watch it unfold, here:

And So We Walked: An Artist's Journey Along the Trail of Tears

Not a bad job, if I do say so myself.
