Faces of America

Faces of America: A show about our ancestry and hosted by Henry Louis Gates, Jr. He interviews Louise Erdrich, Stephen Colbert, Yo Yo Ma, Eva Longoria, Meryll Streep, Kristi Yamaguchi, Elizabeth Alexander, Mario Batali, Malcolm Gladwell, Queen Noor, Mike Nichols and Dr. Mehmet Oz. It is compelling to see that even when our ancestors came here a long time ago, there was already discrimination against foreigners (as you can see in the interview with Stephen Colbert). And, not only here, but also in Europe.

Watch the four episodes: (the links sometimes work and sometiimes they don't...lo siento).
