From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
This TV series traces the ancestry of a few celebrities with jaw-dropping results. Spike Lee, Emmet Smith, Susan Sarandon, and others, have families with terribly interesting stories. For instance, Spike Lee's ancestor (Mars), a slave mechanic, made guns for the Confederacy, and was then was picked up by the Union army after they destroyed the arms factory. The end of Spike Lee's search was even more fascinating. Susan Sarandon's mother had an very interesting history that involved speak-easys, show girls, Frank Sinatra, and two girls in upstate NY. Probably modeled after Henry Louis Gates' "African American Lives" (even more jaw-dropping)...all these series are a great look at history...good for family viewing and really good for middle school and high school viewing.
