Terribly interesting PBS series with AAL 2 and Faces of America as follow-up. Some really jaw-dropping results...you laugh, you cry. Find out the family tree of Oprah (you'd be surprised), Chris Tucker (he goes beyond the Middle Passage), Chris Rock (he actually cries, as do you), and the shocking family tree of Henry Louis Gates Jr himself. Not limited to African American lives as the title suggests...an inexplicable connection is revealed and not every one is who they think they are. Probably inspiration for the newer series "Who Do You Think You Are?"
