This season on his PBS series, "Finding Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates Jr.," Henry Louis Gates has already helped media legend, Barbara Walters, discover her genealogy and uncovered a connection between Kevin Bacon and his wife Kyra Sedgwick.
This week, the renowned Harvard professor is tackling the origins of three religious leaders from different faiths. Pastor Rick Warren, Rabbi Angela Buchdahl and Sheik Yassir Qadhi all have complex family histories that shaped their religious beliefs. With Gates' help, the three unearth a fascinating discovery about the struggle to attain religious freedom in the U.S. and the challenge of assimilating while simultaneously practicing one's faith.
Find out what the three uncover on Sunday night at 9 p.m. on PBS.
