Abstract:

The science of genetics has created an exciting new dimension in the study of black history and heritage. In this program, DNA analysis leads to fascinating discoveries about the lineages of participants-and the ancestry of host Henry Louis Gates, Jr., himself. A groundbreaking study links Professor Gates to a powerful ancient Irish warlord, while genetic evidence suggests that Peter Gomes' direct paternal line reaches back to a Portuguese Jew who fled the country in the early 1500s to escape the Inquisition.
