From travesties of justice to the pursuit of the most intimate truths, this program focuses on participants' ancestors in the early 20th century. Stories include the account of Tom Joyner's great-uncles who, in 1915, were convicted by an all-white jury and executed for a crime that new evidence suggests they did not commit. Meanwhile, Bliss Broyard learns more about her father, renowned New York Times critic Anatole Broyard-a light-skinned black man who chose to pass as white. Ms. Broyard learned of her African-American roots upon her father's death in 1990.
