Henry Louis Gates, Jr. of African American Lives I & II fame returns again to PBS with a show that explores the history of 12 “renowned” and diverse Americans. As we have come to expect, he uses the latest tools of genealogy and genetics with some surprising twists and turns. (I can’t wait!)
The series premieres nationally Wednesdays, February 10 – March 3, 2010 from 8-9 p.m. ET [7-8 p.m. CST] on PBS.
