Most African Americans, in tracing their family's past, encounter a series of daunting obstacles. Slavery was a brutally efficient nullifier of identity, willfully denying black men and women even their names. Here, scholar Henry Louis Gates, Jr., backed by an elite team of geneticists and researchers, takes nineteen extraordinary African Americans on a once unimaginable journey, tracing family sagas through U.S. history and back to Africa.

Comments about PBS In Search of Our Roots: How 19 Extraordinary African Americans Reclaimed Their Past - Book (Hardcover):

This was great. The only improvement I would have liked to see was the actual family trees in the book rather than having to visualize them in my head. It wouldn't have taken much more space and as a genealogist it would have been exciting to see them.

Comments about PBS In Search of Our Roots: How 19 Extraordinary African Americans Reclaimed Their Past - Book (Hardcover):

Well well done and lots of information. I would have like to see the actual family trees shown in the book instead of having to visualize them in my head. It wouldn't have taken that much space to add them. But then I am a genealogist and just love family trees.
