Oprah’s Roots

Talk show queen. Powerful political presence. One of the world’s richest women.  

February 5th@ 9 pm, PBS presents (and WHYY airs) Oprah’s Roots,  an “African American Lives” presentation.  As it turns out, Oprah isn’t Zulu (as she long believed).  Henry Louis Gates Jr. reveals that Oprah’s ancestors were from Liberia. That fact came out in the 2006 “African American Lives.”  In discussions with professor Henry Louis Gates Jr., Oprah uncovers additional secrets.Want to make like Oprah and discover your own ancestors? Gates has published a new book and DVD set called Finding Oprah’s Roots: Finding Your Own.  It’s a straightforward guide to the inner workings of genealogy.

  2. Hello! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.
    Is it hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any tips or suggestions? With thanks
