I love this show with Henry Louis Gates, Jr (a Harvard Professor).
Every time I read different books on Black history, african art, or listen to stories of my family, it makes me wish I could have someone of his experience and exposure to do some REAL research. It would be great to know who I come from. I know more of my mom’s side of the family than I do my dad’s. I would like to know that the stories I have heard are in fact true. Do I have Choctaw in my ancestry? Did my grandfather really have a 1st Caucasian cousin? I have so many questions.
I wonder how much it would be to get this done, Finding Your Roots style. It would definitely be interesting to say the least.
