Second Episode of “Finding Your Roots” on PBS

Click on the above image to view a larger version.

The next episode of “Finding Your Roots” will be broadcast on most PBS stations on Tuesday, October 28th. The program will trace three guests’ roots into the heart of slavery, revealing that there is no singular narrative and challenging preconceptions of an era that profoundly shaped our nation’s sense of itself. Hip-hop artist Nas discovers a web of his slave ancestors and their intimate relationship with their slave master; award-winning actress Angela Bassett meets ancestors whose slave family tragedy is rivaled only by a triumphant emancipation story; and presidential advisor Valerie Jarrett goes back in time more than 200 years to meet a formidable line-up of free people of color — all of them of trailblazers.

Finding Your Roots II, Pt. 6, “We Come from People,” will be broadcast on Tuesday, October 28th. Check your local listings for the time and channel nearest you. The program’s web site may be found at


The date should read SEPTEMBER 28.


This is wildly out of order as the “next” episode was on Sept. 30 and was not the individuals listed here–you’ll note the Oct. 28 episode is No. 6 and we’re only on Episode 2 this week, with 3 showing Oct. 7, at least in my neck of the woods on the West coast.


When is the next episode of roots?
