On the upcoming second season of Finding Your Roots with Dr. Henry Louis Gates on PBS, Nas will dig into his ancestry and learn about his family’s roots in North America and the slaveholders who bought and sold them like property. This should be a fascinating watch. Other guests on the new season include Derek Jeter and Ben Affleck. Check out a preview above.
The new season kicks off on September 23rd.
