In Search of Our Fathers

Season 2 Episode 1 | 53m 11s | Video has closed captioning.

Stephen King’s father walked out on the family when Stephen was two years old and never returned; Courtney B. Vance’s father was a foster child and never knew who his biological parents were and Gloria Reuben’s father was 78 years old when she was born — he died when she was young. Henry Louis Gates solves the mystery of their paternal ancestry and introduces them to relatives they never knew.
