Henry Louis Gates, Jr. - Tracing Roots

I love Henry Louis Gates, Jr.'s documentaries, books, etc.

Late Friday nights, PBS has been running his documentary series African-American Lives. Tonight they aired the program "Tracing Oprah's Roots" where they did the dna and historical searches to determine from where in Africa her matrilineal line originated.

It's fascinating stuff and you should definitely dvr it if you get a chance.
