An article on the PBS web site contains an interview of Henry Louis Gates Jr., known widely as "Skip." Gates is best known for his research tracing the family and genetic history of famous African-Americans. "There are just so many stories that are buried on family trees," says Gates. "My goal is to get everybody in America to do their family tree."
He says his goal in this work is twofold: "First, to show that we're all immigrants, and secondly, that we're all mixed — that we all have been intermarrying, or interrelated sexually from the dawn of human history."
