The more ways you can define yourself, the better off you are.
Malcolm Gladwell, Faces of America

My heart skipped a beat as I watched the trailer from this upcoming documentary. Henry Louis Gates’ discoveries make me swoon! Here, he’s done it again and I can’t wait to see what gems he’s uncovered!

From PBS.org: What made America? What makes us? These two questions are at the heart of the new PBS series Faces of America with Henry Louis Gates, Jr. Building on the success of his series African American Lives(called by the New York Times “the most exciting and stirring documentary on any subject to appear on television in a long time,”) and African American Lives 2, Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates, Jr. again turns to the latest tools of genealogy and genetics to explore the family histories of 12 renowned Americans.

The series premieres nationally Wednesdays, February 10 – March 3, 2010 from 8-9 p.m. ET on PBS.
