Kevin Bacon, Kyra Sedgwick, and Skip Gates Show That “Finding Your Roots” Is a Great Case for PBS

I chanced upon the Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick episode of Finding Your Roots (hosted and written by Henry Louis Gates, Jr.) on PBS tonight.  It came across, to me, as very powerful presentation of history, family, religion, freedom, politics, public education, public intellectualism, race, and the synthesis of these in the responsible framing of the American narrative.  This is what PBS does at its best.  And because you fund PBS, you can watch the whole thing here.
