The diverse American experience as it relates to race, culture, and identity is the focus of Finding Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates, Jr. Presented and written by renowned Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates, Jr., the series continues the quest begun in African American Lives 1 and 2 and Faces of America and carries it to an entirely new level.
Each hour of Finding Your Roots will feature two celebrity guests, who are bound together by an intimate, sometimes hidden, link whether it be as old friends, through long lost relatives, or even through a common past.
This season's celebrity guests include Barbara Walters, Robert Downey, Jr., Kevin Bacon, Tyra Banks, John Legend, Michelle Rodriguez, Margaret Cho, Samuel L. Jackson and Martha Stewart, among many others.
The series will begin on Sunday, March 25, and run through Sunday, May 20. Check the PBS TV listings for times.
