In this week’s episode, Aisha Tyler dives fearlessly into her mother’s family history, tracking down the story of a man that had been lost over generations. She uncovers the astonishing tale of a prominent ancestor whose struggle to keep his illegitimate son a secret made the papers; a father who actively fought against his kin’s basic human rights; and the impressive story of her two times great-grandfather, who dove headlong into controversy, took a brave stand for his people, and left a mark so great that he is commemorated today by one of America’s capital cities.
The next episode featuring Scott Foley airs on Sunday April 10, 2016, 9:00 pm Eastern / 8:00 pm Central on TLC. Check your local television listings for the exact time in your location.
