NPR Interview w/ Henry Louis Gates

Courtesy of Mark via his Twitter feed, I learned that NPR has an interview today with Henry Louis Gates, Jr.  Check it out on their site.

Gates is the author of Finding Oprah’s Roots: Finding Your Own - published in 2007 that describes the work done on her family tree.  As you may know, Oprah has Nashville roots.  I did a quick search online and found this excerpt from Jet magazine in 1972 about her win as “Miss Fire Prevention” while she was a student at Tennessee State University.

People.com even has a picture of her win!
