"It was a pleasure to have the illustrious Henry Louis Gates Jr reveal so much I didn't know about my family. The documents they found were amazing. It was magical. And that's a word I never use. Much of it made me weep. Here's hoping they cut it. Even if they didn't, thanks so much. I will always treasure this experience. Henry Louis Gates, Jr and I will be on your local PBS station on Tues, May 4 at 8|7c!" ~ Lewis
