Retro Rewind: Oprah Winfrey Traces Roots To Africa

Published: Saturday 5th Aug 2017 by David

Welcome to Retro Rewind, the TGJ original feature launched to take you on a journey into TV and Film’s glorious and informative past.

Today, our journey to the past sees us meet with Oprah‘s as she sought the answers to questions concealed by the horrific, disgusting and inhumane slave trade.

Enslaved Africans faced the threat of torture and death if they spoke their native languages and so said languages and the cultures they came from were lost with every passing generation.

This, making it almost impossible for descendants of enslaved Africans to trace their roots back to the continent…until now.

How Oprah did it?

Watch below…

Do you know anything about your ancestry? If so, we’d love to hear about it…

    Where else would Ms.Winfrey think she would be from besides Africa. I could have told her that. The question is where in Africa and what is her native language

    TGJ I hope yall take the Ancestry DNA test. If you are from Africa it will help the Diaspora reunite with missing families. Most Africans have distant cousins in the Diaspora they know nothing of. We are one
