About Finding Your Roots:

Finding Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates, Jr.

is the 12th and latest series from the renowned cultural critic and Harvard scholar.

In this 10-part series, Professor Gates continues the quest he begun in African American Lives 1 and 2 and Faces of America delving into the genealogy and genetics of an all new group of famous Americans.

The series combines history and science in a fascinating exploration of race, family, and identity in today's America.

Each hour features a different pair of celebrity guests, who are bound together by an intimate, sometimes hidden link, whether it be as old friends, through long-lost relatives, or even through a common ancestral past.
