  • As one of the world's leading sociologists, Henry Louis Gates, Jr. produced a series of documentaries for public television that draw on such resources as genealogy and DNA investigation to provide an epic-length chronicle of the history of African Americans, highlighting cultural identity, contributions to society, historical struggles, and much more. The first two programs, AFRICAN AMERICAN LIVES (2006) and AFRICAN AMERICAN LIVES 2 (2008), employ a narrative approach that involves documenting the lineages of a handful of famous African Americans, including Chris Tucker, T.D. Jakes and Oprah Winfrey. The third program, FACES OF AMERICA (2010) (which also appears in this set) expands its focus to Americans who represent varying ethnicities, such as Meryl Streep, Stephen Colbert and Yo-Yo Ma.
