Re: Oprah's Roots
In Response To: Re: Oprah's Roots ()
Let's set the record straight --- at least for me. I do not resent Oprah's good fortune or the fact that so many people worked hard to put her family tree together. For years I was a huge fan of her's but one day her show's format changed. It didn't "click" with me anymore. I still greatly admire her for her accomplishments and the influence she has on whoever she has influence on.
Like you and everyone else I greatly appreciated viewing the PBS show about finding her roots. It utterly fascinates and encourages me that such details and wealth of information could be uncovered for us African-Americans. I even bought the book and it arrived yesterday. Happy digging, all!
