about this book

FINDING OPRAH'S ROOTS will not only endow students with a new appreciation for the key contributions made by history’s unsung, but it will also equip some with the necessary tools to connect to pivotal figures in their own past.

For Oprah, the path back to the past was emotion-filled and profoundly illuminating, connecting the narrative of her family to the larger American narrative and “anchoring” her in a way not previously possible. For the student, FINDING OPRAH'S ROOTS offers the possibility of an equally rewarding experience.
