Building on the widespread acclaim of "African American Lives: (2006) and "Oprah's Roots" (2007), the four-part series "African American Lives 2" journeys deep into ancestry of an all new group of remarkable individuals, offering an in-depth look at the African-American experience and race relations throughout U.S. history.
Gates returns as series host and co-executive producer, guiding genealogical investigations down through the 20th century, Reconstruction, slavery and early U.S. history, and presenting cutting-edge genetic analysis that locates participants' ancestors in Africa, Europe and America. Joining Gates in the new broadcast are poet Maya Angelou, author Bliss Broyard, actor Don Cheadle, actor Morgan Freeman, theologian Peter Gomes, publisher Linda Johnson Rice, athlete Jackie Joyner-Kersee, radio personality Tom Joyner, comedian Chris Rock, music legend Tina Turner, and college administrator Kathleen Henderson, selected from more than 2,000 applicants to have her family history researched and DNA tested along with that of Gates and the series' other 10 participants.
"These stories of adversity, sacrifice, achievement and empowerment transcend the realm of color with a universal resonance," said Gates. "These discoveries about our ancestors are fascinating stories that everyone, regardless of race, can identify with and draw inspiration from," added Gates, Alphonse Fletcher University professor and director of the W.E.B. Du Bois Institute for African and African American Research at Harvard University. "They're stories that together offer a new understanding of not only the African-American experience, but also of race in America."
"Through even greater depth of research and more powerful storytelling, all of the stories in 'African American Lives 2' share a common thread ó they show the value of knowing who you are and where you come from," Gates said. "And now, the inclusion of Kathleen's story shows that viewers everywhere can take this same journey."
†Episode one, "The Road Home" (Feb. 6, 9 p.m.), focuses on participants' ancestors in the early 20th century. Stories include the tragic account of Tom Joyner's great-uncles who, in 1915, were convicted by an all-white jury and executed in the electric chair for a crime that new evidence suggests they did not commit, and Bliss Broyard, who lived her life unaware that her father, renowned New York Times critic Anatole Broyard, was a light-skinned black man who chose to "pass" as white. She learned of her African-American roots upon her father's death in 1990.
†Episode two, "A Way Out of No Way" (Feb. 6, 10 p.m.), continues tracing the guests' lineages back through the late 1800s to the Civil War, featuring such stories as Chris Rock's maternal great-great-grandfather, Julius Caesar Tingman, a black Civil War veteran who was twice elected to the South Carolina State Legislature; and Don Cheadle's ancestors, who had been enslaved by Chickasaw Indians and brought to Oklahoma on the tail end of the "Trail of Tears," the forced relocation of American Indians during the 1830s.
†Episode three, "We Come From People" (Feb. 13, 9 p.m.), reveals stories of participants' ancestors during the early years of the United States, such as a riveting account of life in slavery by Morgan Freeman's great-grandmother, discovered within the records of the Depression-era Works Progress Administration, and Peter Gomes' ancestors, who were freed and supported by Quaker families in Virginia in the late 1700s.
†DNA analysis leads to fascinating discoveries about participants' lineages in episode four, "The Past Is Another C

New York, NY - Music fans got a dose of Hip-Hop rolled up in Soul as J. Keys took to the stage during Steve Wallace's performance at the world renowned Blue Note in New York City's legendary village performance district.
With the lead in from Farrah Burns, backed by bass, drum, keys, and 2 piece vocals, patrons got their money's worth as the three delivered the "Fell n Luv Remix" live for the first time.
This remix, released on the "Come With the Remix" LP is the upbeat Hip-Hop flavored descendant of "Fell n Luv," a ballad originally released on Wallace's impressive debut "Come With the Real." Keys rhymes, "I fell in love like she fell from above, I fell off the other girls, I fell off the clubs"
Backstage the workaholic emcee was all smiles as he announced the completion of his new mixtape the Dead Horse, crafted in the image of everything you love about Hip-Hop when it's done right. Keys, virtually working around the clock these days, also disclosed that his next studio album will have 5 tracks produced by Steve. The Dead Horse, which is already garnering critical acclaim among music insiders, is the set up for the new album.
J. Keys said, "I approached the Dead Horse mixtape with the same intensity that I would an album and it's going to show when you hear it. My formula consists of a little ranting and raving, and a lot of leading by example. In short, my aim is to preserve the integrity of the music."
The Dead Horse will be available online this month.

A judge ordered rap superstar T.I. released from prison on $3 million dollars bond today (October 26) but the rapper must stay in home confinement until his federal trial for possession of machine guns and silencers.
T.I.'s attorneys brought to the bond hearing two cashier's checks totaling $2 million provided by the rapper and Atlantic Records, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Judge Alan Baverman said the rapper will be restricted to a house in Henry County, Georgia and will be monitored 24 hours a day by a private monitoring service that he must also pay for.
The judge said that T.I. was to have no contact with witnesses or informants associated with the case.
Noting that T.I has a team of powerful lawyers, Baverman said, "You shouldn't do anything that will undermine their ability to represent you."
T.I., born Clifford Harris, is charged with possession of unregistered machine guns and silencers and possession of firearms by a convicted felon.
The rapper was arrested in Atlanta on October 13 by agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) after he allegedly attempted to purchase three machine guns and two silencers from an undercover agent, acting as an arms dealer.
Police also found loaded weapons and marijuana on T.I. when they arrested him. A subsequent raid of his Atlanta mansion turned up a cache of loaded automatic weapons.
"On behalf of the family and friends of T.I., we appreciate the global outpouring of concern that he has received during this period," representatives for the rapper said. "T.I. is humbled by the overwhelming encouragement he is getting from his fans and offers his profound thanks to all."
T.I., 27, faces a maximum of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine on each count.
