Finding Your Roots -- Season 8

The eighth season of Finding Your Roots continues to explore how the interaction of how different racial, religious and ethnic groups has produced our diverse society and how family genealogies can both confirm and explore many of our national myths. In each episode, host Henry Louis Gates Jr. conducts detailed interviews with guests, drawing on genealogical and DNA research to investigate how their ancestors have helped to mold them as individuals – and the United States as a nation.
