Finding Your Roots: Season 4 For more than a decade - beginning with the premiere of his groundbreaking series AFRICAN AMERICAN LIVES - renowned Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates, Jr. has helped to expand America's sense of itself, stimulating a national conversation about identity with humor, wisdom, and compassion. Working with a team of professional genealogists, geneticists, and historians, Gates has explored the ancestry of dozens of influential people from diverse backgrounds, taking millions of viewers deep into the past to reveal the connections that bind us all.

The fourth season of the FINDING YOUR ROOTS series advances this journey with a special focus on the experiences of individual families across time, looking at how our ancestors have preserved and redefined cherished traditions as they've crossed the globe. Hosted and written by Gates, the series moves fluidly from Asia and Africa to Europe and the Americas, uniting us all through emotional moments that enrich and enlighten - encouraging us to look at our world through a wider, more inclusive lens. In these ten episodes viewers will discover the surprising ancestral stories of 28 fascinating guests, including Carmelo Anthony, Ava DuVernay, Téa Leoni, Ana Navarro, Bernie Sanders, Questlove, and Christopher Walken. Taken together, their stories illuminate the vast kaleidoscope of culture, race, and experience that make up our nation and world.

A Gift of Life Being Shared -- It is Joyous to Witness
Review by Gwen on 11/14/21 review stating A Gift of Life Being Shared -- It is Joyous to Witness
Finding Your Roots: Season 4 has potential to be better than many years of therapy in terms of its impact and ability to help us all gain insight into who we are and that others made it possible for us all to be who we are today. Im ordering the DVD for my family this holiday season. I see this work of Dr. Gates as an incredible social work and mental health work for our society -- truly innovative in giving back something meaningful. Its definitely a product worth investing in and adding to your library of meaningful documentaries of cultural representation. I hope others purchase it for their children and families. I believe this type of work is an important contribution to society and each other. To understand who we are where we come from...the people who established our heritage..... really helps us to regroup in how we are living and sheds light on the preciousness of life and work we can and want to do. At least thats what watching this did for me. Ive started searching and hoping to find my own family roots. My older sister is also involved and were trying to bring my daughter onto the family research team. But Finding Your Roots: Season 4 has been a fulfilling and healing process to witness in the guests whose roots were researched... the deeper meaning behind our people lived and how we can live going forward is special. Im a grateful viewer to have had the opportunity to witness this work. Can only imagine what the subjects whose lives were researched must have felt. Thank you Dr. Gates, and all your researchers, and PBS for weaving the knowledge and history of your gifted and talented guests into a teaching moment for us all. I look forward to many more episodes!!! This seems like a gift you were spiritually led to give us. I truly appreciate it! Thank you.
