Traditional Healing Systems of the African Diaspora is the name of the first ROOTS conference and the name of the transcribed book. The book has a detailed appendix, copies of the mayoral proclamations and lists the topics that were discussed for ROOTS 2 and 3. ROOTS 2 and 3 were never transcribed. Possibly Dr/ Anthony Andoh has them. Anyway ROOOTS 1 conference was trscribed to be as literal exact as possible.
The titles and topics for discussion are
-Intro-What the African Diaspora has in common in terms of healing.-Cassandra Mary Wimbs

Since the original presentations exist in paper form, the transcribed titles and topics are hear for discussion and the possibility of another conference.
The Appendix also contains

History was made at that conference.
