"But despite the complicated nature where the brutal nature of the paternity event. People still want to know who I came from what happened to them. What my cousins look like. Because you're carrying DNA from that side of the family tree. An alternate leads leads to a great deal of healing and reconciliation. Only what time it the case of Jeffrey Cannon that we contacted to wipe descendants to descendants of a white man who possibly could be jeffries great-great-grandfather and both of them said what man wouldn't talk to us at the sister. She talked to me. She said she'd seen the show. She was an elderly. We set more. Dvd's Tolga Oprah bit in the show. Man I was at all the all the do what you gotta do. Yep and then I called her and she said No. I've decided I'm not going to do it. And I said why she said it would bear as my daddy and I was thinking your Dan. I don't care she goes no. I'm not going to do so. I said wealth and I respect that you ever change your mind Let me know but you know what now We can build family trees from even if the DNA site it says your fourth or fifth or sixth cousin with enough work we could construct family trees by the identifies now of your ancestors more easily than we could back. When I did Geoffrey Canada in fact with me we've known for years and my whole life up sixty nine years old. We've known that Jane Gates of my Great Great Grandmother. I ever picture upstairs if my house in Harvard Square right now and we have a family history room and we have pictures of my ancestors very blessed that I have great records moved. You know by now I said Yeah. I just said for three sets of black people who were free by fourth grade grandparents and they lived in the same county in Virginia which is now West Virginia thirty miles from where I live. Wow we have a mandate continuity and family land we inherited from when we set about fourth grandparents were free in eighteen twenty three by white men. They may ramp meter. He gave him a thousand acres of land. And by Bruce and cousin. Still some of that land. You know Japan's abandoned stability very unusual. American ask you this. Because sometimes it's easier to put the dots together for our white ancestors because they have better records. Yep absolutely I get video. FOR LEAD SPONSOR ANCESTRY DOT com. It was about tips for Doing an ancestry and about African American ancestry because my job is to help everybody find their roots and especially like people of course am a professor of African and African American Studies. But I I'm very proud of the fact. That many of our guests are Ashkenazi. Jewish people from Eastern Europe and chasing their ancestors is just as hard as anything African American ancestors. It's because of the all the anti-semitism and records were destroyed they have been digitized et. Cetera ET CETERA. But here's what we do. You the trick. Is you start with yourself? And then you work backwards to be eighteen seventy cents and everybody's eighteen sentence for the first time everybody black because the census only recorded the names of free people sixty nine ninety percent of our ancestors. Were enslaved so they weren't in the census by the the ten percent of our ancestors were free and they were in the they were in the sense and so if you're lucky enough to be descended from supplement it was free. It's easy to trace you your and sets you back at slavery. So what do we do for the people ninety percent of us? Whose emphasis were enslaved. Well let's say you find out that your ancestor in the hypothetically call Michael Smith Seventy Michael Smith is is living in Challah County Mississippi. Will you go back? And he's thirty years old at. He's your great great grandfather. You go back to the eighteen sixty census and look for any white person who owned slaves whose last name was Smith and then there was a separate schedule. Cup of slave schedule. A The owned male flavor was twenty years old. Why did he did? Chances? Are that that's your ancestor. The look in in this White Man and Mr Mr Bit. Suspense is at state records. Because if he had a will he would say I leave my play Michael to my daughter married or he wouldn't have to list of names of slaves when he paid taxes or other legal Other legal documents and so the key to finding the ancestry with enslaved African American is finding the White Family. Wow on them and then looking for their first name in their records and if you're an and be been very fortunate it being able to do this many times since we started. What's the male fighting your route in two thousand five.

"Here's what amazing things revealed by DNA. American daddy get dented. The average African American is twenty four percent. White be average. African Americans is twenty four percent white. And that's because of slavery and my other hand. The every African American is only zero point. Eight percent native American American at every African American ever met the twenty four percent Asian American. Okay now talked about that. We've just before. Why do so many black people believe that they descendants of Native Americans? I would think that that would be regional. Well it because I have Chris. Rock that when we started this series. Remember I just did Black guess it was called. African American lives in African American lives two. I did a fabulous interview with Chris. Rock in which he broke down cried because we showed him that his great great grandfather Julius Caesar Tenement was thing whether they elected to the South Carolina legislature in the reconstruction government and. He had no idea he told me when he collected himself. I go why you know. I'm wondering why he was crying. He said that he had wanted to be a politician. Had gone to his mother when he was twelve and his mother and said of the system on that black men become politicians and no he. He gave up that ambition family treat. There was A politician so that there are amazing stories buried on your family tree so when he said I have made American insist I go not much. Here's why do you think all of our brothers and sisters Maximize native American history and minimize our European ancestry. And he said well because European ancestry by enlarge statement rape or CAJOLE SEXUALITY. What during slavery and. So who wants to think about that? It's it's easier to fantasize that your ancestor ran away from slavery over the hill. The native Americans welcomed warmly and said hey you wanNA marry my daughter. You know chief. It's easier to have that fantasy than confront the reality of rape during slavery. The majority of our white ancestry entered our genome..

Everybody perished including British citizens. And we at least have snowed a condition. which would even receive from the very first days? I had the talk talk with Minister of Foreign Affairs. So you're on the first day and mentioned that it was the plane was shot down by by now. At least we have this piece which is bringing some on peace to the families of the perished ones so we are starting as the nation's Cleveland nations this collision of the nation's from this point and we hope that we'll be able to bring the to the communal intelligibility of those perpetrators of this crime. And we're not just talking about some four soldier who pushed the button. We made it clear when the president's talked to President or any that you want to know who gave the order to hold the link we have to find out who is responsible for this of walk people and we will talk about it today and hopefully be able as the collective buddy to talk to uranium's and present in the right direction. So are you now getting the cooperation you want from the Iranian authorities. The president the Foreign Minister the military authorities. Do you is your message getting through descendant all message and the message of international community coming through. And that's what made the revenues to cut rate. I can until you that. We have good cooperation right now. The practical level people working disrupted they twenty four hours a day at the technician to experts. It's on both sides. We have our team team working. We have now Canadians joint. Effort decide is clear it which we had the problem with our have access to everything we we needed managed to identify bodies Ukraine us and we're ready to repatriate offering no assistance Fauzan nations to forty creation. What what are we missing? Last piece in this equation is accessible information stored in blackbox. We've been telling by we've been told by Iranian that we'll be able to repatriate the boxes now this discussion race from. I don't know where that it can be still done in the right new territory. It's who where it will be done. We just want to know that. Nobody's nobody's temporary with recordings themselves and they have rights expertise in the hands. When is done? So when you say right expertise on hand. You mean. Ukrainian officials Ukrainian officials or other internationals to be when this black box is investigated when the boxes are are decoded. Bright Bright but the perfect is to have this boxes themselves physically on Ukrainian territory because wheel off the plane. We have this right to investigate. Then what will be will be able able to have every expert if it is not something that we can achieve with Iranians. We'll ask our colleagues and friends who have expertise to come with us to be sure that worried you from direct boxes is actually the actual needed information. You still getting resistance from Iran after all that's happened and after the MENSA amount of pressure in Iran is now under internationally. Besides this unsettled business with black boxes. So far we're having the expertise gained and by Iranians and the support on different levels. I know the ring is a planning official Louisa to Ukraine to come even to gray was up apologies. What we were hearing was the president is allowing us to go ahead with Ryan presidents? So we don't want is to be caught.

We wanted to go through this. We won't sue the justice you brought and then they will do whatever they have. The problems political implications on the ground themselves. I want to ask you one political question though about Iran and that is as you can see. The trump administration is putting a huge amount of pressure on the so-called e three the European nations who joined the Iran nuclear deal bill and others who has signed up to it. What do you? What do you make of the so-called collateral damage if a nuclear agreement? is destroyed that you all signed onto the UN signed onto the Europeans and previously the Americans as well don't forget that we is as a nation which gave up biggest arsenal which was good. Then your the the French Chinese to gives us so if anybody's pushing more for this deal the place of our lens the globe will be more secure that Ukrainians.

The first, of course, you were. We would not have had those those opportunities. And I could imagine the heartbreak when you read the speech is being that day that Richard eighteen eighty three. And then Douglas went to Lincoln hall three days later and made another speed separately about the betrayal of the dingo. And you ask why would they do this? Well, what remained the leading export from the United States and through the nineteen thirties cutting somebody had to pick that cut and you moving from an economy where labour was free a sensibly, right? As performed by slaves and it needed to be replaced maximize profits with a form of what Neo slavery. So share cropping debt pianist vagrancy laws you saw three black men. Four black men on the street. They could be arrested put on the chain gay. You don't have those images of chain gangs. That's where they all. Come from. Between eighteen eighty nine and nineteen thirty or so three thousand seven hundred black men are lynched in the name of many, many, not all but many accused of rape rape, white women. Right. Both Frederick Douglass Booker T Washington pointed out that nobody was acute virtually was accused of raping a white woman during the civil war in the south. When the masters were away fighting and the male slaves were black back on the plan tastes think about the isn't that curious lynching was a trope that was invented as part of a larger larger white supremacist rhetorical superstructure and one of the. Fascinating things that I figured out when we were making the series of particularly when I was writing the book was this was this time of America's first social media war. It was a battle between these confected images of black people was thieves liars venal deregulated Sambo art, we call it. And this book is full of every chapter is funnel by a visual essay comprise of these horrible images, which we all have seen their call. It's called memorabilia now.

"Upstairs at the national constitution center. You heard the passionate professor gates downstairs and of all of our colleagues. So we're just going to jump right into this conversation. I wanna correct one thing that you said you said that every school child in Philadelphia should see this exhibition every school child in America should see here. -solutely right. The most amazing exhibition about. Reconstruction that I've ever seen. I learned things on our tour that I had never seen the different drafts of the three reconstruction amendments. So thank you. And thanks members of the board and all the people who support this marvelous center for making this education possible because we never really have dealt with the issues raise by reconstruction. Thank you so much for that. I learned so much from that interactive to ask you what you learn. But also what you want Americans to know about those reconstruction amendments themselves the thirteenth fourteenth fifteenth amendment. Well, one of the most interesting thing the thirteenth amendment, of course, abolish slavery, several six eighteen sixty five and most people know it now because do Bernice documentary who didn't know it before because we were raised at the U ban space, you proclamation, abolish slavery. And of course, it didn't historians think maybe half a million formerly enslaved people were able to get behind union lines. And therefore gain their freedom before the end of the civil war, but the institution of slavery was only abolished by the ratification of the thirteenth amendment. The fourteenth is us said so eloquently of equal protection clause and birthright citizenship, you ever wonder where birthright citizenship came from Charles Sumner and his colleagues were trying to figure out what is the status of these people who are have been property for a quarter of a millennium quarter of a millennium, and then came up with birthright citizenship, which is was brilliant, actually. And then finally that's eighteen sixty eight and then finally the ratification of the fifteenth amendment, which effectively gave black men the right to vote said that race could not be used to prevent or prohibit any American from voting. But what's very curious about the the fifteenth amendment is that? Black people in the south who had been four million slaved in free in the ten of the eleven confederate states got the right to vote three years before this is prize. It was a surprise to me when I started doing research for what became our series. And it's a surprise. I think for most of you that if you were a former slave or had been free in the south. It was one of the four reconstruction amendments that gave black men the right to vote vote. And that was the what we call the first freedom summer the freedom summer of eighteen sixty seven when eighty point five percent of all eligible black men in ten of the eleven confederate states registered to vote. But here's the kicker. You know, how we demonize the south as opposed to the north, and we have a fantasy that there was no racism in the north if you were free I descend from three sets of free negroes. We would have said they would call themselves two sets were free by the outbreak of the American revolution. The third set of my father on my mother's side. There's my father's mother said refree in eighteen twenty three they live thirty miles from where I was born. I have a tremendous amount of stability in by family. It's now in West Virginia.

We're going to listen to an interview Terry recorded with historian Henry Louis gates, the new season of his TV series. Finding your roots is now showing on PBS in the show. Notable guests discover their family roots based on genealogical research and DNA results. This kind of research has been especially important for African Americans whose ancestors had their names and families taken away when they were enslaved one episode this season explores gates own DNA and family history. Professor gates is the director of the Hutchins center for African and African American research at Harvard and has produced numerous books and documentaries about African American history. Terry spoke to Henry Louis gates in front of an audience last may when he was in Philadelphia to receive WHYY's annual lifelong learning. Thank you. Because you talk to everybody about their genealogy. I wanted to talk with you about yours, and what you've learned about yourself and the larger meaning of what you've learned about yourself. And I want to start with the person who got you started engineer allergy. It was really like the photograph of her of your great. Great aunt, Jane gates, and you regret grandma. Great grandma. Thank you. So I wanna read something that you wrote about her, and you got this from the eighteen seventy census. The Jane gates, h fifty one female, mulatto laundries and nurse owns real estate. Valued at fourteen hundred dollars born in Maryland cannot read or write now she was born in eighteen nineteen died in eighteen eighty eight or nine years old when you found her picture and got this information from the eighteen seventy cents so reading this. The. She'd been a slave the first question that comes to my mind. And I don't know if it was the first question that Cam to yours was wishy raped by the man who owned her. I can't believe you asked this question. Because is that you personal. It's a horrible way to start the average African American the average African American is twenty four percent European. Now think about that. And most DNA companies in the United States will tell you that they have never tested an African American who is one hundred percent from sub Saharan Africa. This isn't called an admixture test it measures your ancestry back five hundred years approximately. So what that means is that it's the percentage of a perfect family tree. What percent would be of from sub-saharan Africa? What percent would be from Europe percent would be native American African loved the joke about this African Americans all think that they are descended from a native American and every American has less than one percent native American ancestry, but they have twenty four percent European ancestry. So where's I come from? It comes from slavery. Was this an equal sexual relationship? Of course, not. So obviously rape or best cajoled sexuality was the cause. But there are exceptions. When I did Morgan Freeman. Family tree. Obvious through his DNA that he was descended from a white man who was an oversee on a plantation in Mississippi, and we knew the name of his great great grandmother in the name of this white man, so overseer slave plantation rape. Right. Except in the next scene. I showed him their headstones. They were very next to each other as soon as the civil war ended. They became common-law husband and wife, which was illegal Mississippi. They live together they had kids in their very next to each other. So let's get back to you, Greg, Greg. Greg. So you assume it was not a consensual relationship, but she managed to own her own home five years after being freed from slave for which he paid cash. So how do you do that? Because of this white man, you don't get fourteen hundred dollars by saving your nickels and dimes slave, right? Yeah. So obviously somebody gave her that money. She paid cash for that house in what was largely a white neighborhood and our family my cousin. Johnny gates still on said house to this day. It was just put me historic register in Maryland in that copay. But I saw that photograph and read her obituary on the day that we buried my father's father Edward Saint Lawrence gates, and the obituary said died disdain Cumberland, Maryland, January six eighteen eighty eight. Jane gates, an estimable colored woman and that night, and then daddy showed my brother and me. Dr Paul gates now chief of dentistry Bronx Lebanon hospital. Very impressive.

So where does that come from? It comes from slavery with this an equal sexual relationship. Of course, not. So obviously rape or at best cajoled sexuality was the cause. But there are exceptions. When I did Morgan Freeman. Nhs family tree. It was obvious through his DNA that he was descended from a white man who was an overseer on a plantation in Mississippi. And we knew the name of his great great grandmother in the name of this white man, so overseer slave plantation rape. Right. Except in the next scene. I showed him their headstones they were buried next to each other. As soon as the civil war ended. They became common-law husband and wife, which was illegal Mississippi. They live together they had kids in their very next to each other. So let's get back to you. Greg. Greg. Okay. So you assume it was not a consensual relationship, but she managed to own her own home five years after being freed from slave for which he paid cash. So how do you do that? Because of this white man, you don't get fourteen hundred dollars by saving your nickels and dimes as a slave, right? Yeah. So obviously somebody gave her that she paid cash for that house in what was largely a white neighborhood and our family my cousin, Johnny gates still onset house to this day. It was just put on the historic register in Maryland, and that cool thing, but I saw that photograph and read her obituary on the day that we buried my father's father Edward Saint Lawrence gates, and the said died this thing Cumberland, Maryland, January six eighteen eighty eight Jane gates, and estimable colored woman and that night, and then daddy showed my brother and me.

We're going to listen to an interview Terry recorded with historian Henry Louis gates, the new season of his TV series. Finding your roots is now showing on PBS in the show. Notable guests discover their family roots based on genealogical research and DNA results. This kind of research has been especially important for African Americans whose ancestors had their names and families taken away when they were enslaved one episode this season explores gates own DNA and family history. Professor gates is the director of the Hutchins center for African and African American research at Harvard and has produced numerous books and documentaries about African American history. Terry spoke to Henry Louis gates in front of an audience last may when he was in Philadelphia to receive WHYY's annual lifelong learning. Because you talked to everybody about their genealogy. I wanted to talk with you about yours, and what you learned about yourself and the larger meaning of what you've learned about yourself. I don't want to start with the person who got you started engineer allergy. It was really it's like the photograph of her of your great. Great aunt, Jane gates, and you regret grandma. Great grandma.

I can't believe you asked this question. Because is that you personal. It's a horrible way to start the average African American the average African American is twenty four percent European. Now think about that. And most DNA companies in the United States will tell you that they have never tested an African American who was one hundred percent from sub Saharan Africa. This is called an admixture test it measures your ancestry back five hundred years approximately. So what that means is that it's the percentage of if you had a perfect family, treat what percent would be from sub Saharan Africa. What percent would be from Europe or percent would be native American African American love to joke about this African Americans all think that they are descended from a native American and every American has less than one percent native American ancestry, but they have twenty four percent European ancestry.
