Storyline

Episode one focuses on stories of participants' ancestors in the early 20th century, including the tragic account of Tom Joyner's great-uncles, who were executed in 1915 for a crime that evidence suggests they did not commit, and Bliss Broyard's stunning discovery about the identity of her father - renowned New York Times critic Anatole Broyard - at the time of his death.
