Tomorrow night on SBS series “other” genealogy series, Finding Your Roots, Samuel L. Jackson and Condoleezza Rice learn about ancestral links.

Host Henry Louis Gates Jr. takes viewers on a remarkable journey with a celebrity group bound together by an intimate, sometimes hidden link. Trekking through layers of ancestral history, the participants uncover secrets and surprises, and share life-altering discoveries.

Samuel L. Jackson, Condoleezza Rice and Brown University president, Ruth Simmons, have each climbed to the pinnacle of their profession, yet each started life as a second-class citizen in the Jim Crow south. DNA is used to investigate family mysteries such as where in Africa each of them have originated from and who the white men are in their family trees.
