Finding Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates, Jr. is a ten-part series on PBS that explores the history of America though the lives, families, and DNA of some of its most celebrated citizens. As part of the national outreach for the series and in celebration of the grand opening of the Black Archives of Mid-America in Kansas City, The Local Show presents a spoken word piece written and performed by Glenn North, poet in residence at the American Jazz Museum. We recorded Glenn at the NEW black archives which opens to the public next month.

The Black Archives of Mid-America re-opens in the 18th and Vine Jazz District on June 16th.
