  • Harvard professor and scholar Dr. Henry Louis Gates brings one of his bestselling books to the small screen with the four-part PBS documentary AFRICAN AMERICAN LIVES. Using an innovative blend of historical public records and scientific DNA analysis, Gates traces the genealogies of eight prominent African Americans--neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson, televangelist Bishop T.D. Jakes, physician-turned-astronaut Dr. Mae Jemison, sociologist Dr. Sara Lawrence-Lightfoot, composer-musician Quincy Jones, actor-comedians Whoopi Goldberg and Chris Tucker, and one-woman media conglomerate Oprah Winfrey--to reveal meaningful truths about the complex tangle of racial identity and shared humanity.
