have we met?
I AM LISA HAZELL
A bibliophile, and creative visionary dedicated to helping thought leaders like you get your legacy out of your head and onto a living generational map.
I am the founder of Paperdoll Ancestry, an urbanist documentarian, oral historian and genealogist. My work is deeply informed by communication and oral history theory and practice, and I specialize in promoting Black life and family histories. I have spent more than two decades researching African American genealogy and almost three decades collaborating with feature film directors, cinematographers, costume designers and actors in telling visual stories.
