Finding Oprah's Roots

Annotation
Tied to an identically titled, highly-promoted PBS special, Finding Oprah's Roots will be eagerly read by all who are fascinated by the family background of America's most powerful and beloved female celebrity. Oprah will be featured in both the show and book, showing by her example how it is possible to penetrate the fog-shrouded years of slavery and build an African American family tree. Simultaneously poignant, historically illuminating and practical, this unprecedented undertaking presents a user-friendly methodology that will help 35 million African Americans seeking to discover their own roots.
