Hi there,

We're gearing up for the second season of the History Channel show How the States Got Their Shapes, which explores American history and culture through different locations and themes. We've added a "trivia quiz" element to the show that has different contestants related to the theme face off against one another in a very laid back, fun, casual trivia quiz (again, related to the theme).

We'll be filming a "North/South" episode later this summer in St. Louis and I'm trying to find people to participate. One of our trivia rounds is going to focus on the history of slavery in the colonial United States as framed by the North and the South. I'm hoping to find people who can trace their lineage back to either slaves or slave masters to possibly participate in this trivia round. I'm looking for big personalities and fun, funny, outgoing people. It'd be great if they knew each other, but it's not a deal breaker.

I'm hoping you can possibly suggest people, or help point me in the right direction!

Thanks in advance for your help.
