Summary
Faces of America introduces a wide range of cultural figures--representing a vast range of cultural and ethnic roots--to their ancestors and their stories, from the old country through the journey to America. Henry Louis Gates, Jr. traces the family trees of authors, actors, musicians, athletes, educators, intellectuals and discovers stories and figures that had been forgotten or lost through the generations. Through original documents and photos, the program explores the dynamic and shifting relationship America had with new immigrants in the 20th century. Along the way, Gates offers up a rich pageant of immigrant stories and reminds viewers that, if you trace the lineage of almost any American family back far enough, you will find an immigrant story
