The basic drive to discover who we are and where we come from is at the core of Season 2 of Finding Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates, Jr. Continuing on the quest begun in his previous projects, African American Lives, African American Lives 2, Faces of America, and the first season of Finding Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates, Jr. Gates finds new ways to, as he says, "get into the DNA of American culture."

"Finding Your Roots" Season 2

By Dan K.

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS Finding Your Roots, Season 2 DVD:

I have a much better appreciation of what immigration has contributed to the U.S.. Additionally, how much better we have it than our ancestors and the history of the countries they came from.

impactful

Comments about PBS Finding Your Roots, Season 2 DVD:

I find Gates' work to be profoundly poignant and moving. Through the lens of the personal ancestral lines of well known people comes a look into how historical events shape and are responsible for the conditions that gave rise to ourselves!

I was particularly interested in the episode with Carole King, Alan Dershowitz and Tony Kushner because of the look at the history of the persecution of Jews in Easter Europe and it's impacts on us today, as this is what I too come from as well.

Thank you Louis for this incredible initiative and collaboration with PBS.

Still excellent

Comments about PBS Finding Your Roots, Season 2 DVD:

Having purchased season 1 of this great series and having watched it on PBS, I knew it had to be great and it was. I would love to know how he chooses the varied and popular subjects for this research. For example, the segment on Brits, Sally Field, Sting, and Deepak Chopra. "Who woulda thunk it?"
