Abstract:

Despite the tragic gaps that slavery created in many family trees, new research is rebuilding awareness of black life and culture during America's first few decades. This program reveals stories of participants' ancestors during the early years of the United States-such as the riveting, recently discovered account of life in slavery by Morgan Freeman's great-grandmother and the tales of Peter Gomes' ancestors, who were freed and supported by Virginian Quakers in the late 1700s.
