Gontran Quenum, the authors of "Roots Recovered!" said they were very pleased with the airing of the brilliant PBS documentary "African American Lives" by Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates.
White said while he was very pleased with the show he wants the opportunity to explore one's African heritage to be accessible to the "not so rich and famous. "My book makes African travel and using DNA to trace your roots accessible to the working person," said White.
"Oprah Winfrey, Chris Tucker and Whoopi Goldberg have the wealth and resources to easily explore their African roots. My book helps the everyday not so rich and famous do what they did on the documentary on a shoestring budget."
The book has received rave reviews and generated great interest since its release in January 2004 and was featured on the Tavis Smiley Show on National Public Radio. Besides appearing on the Tavis Smiley show, White and the book have also been featured on numerous radio shows such as Africa meets Africa with Angelique Shofar on Pacifica Radio; on WHUR The Caribbean Experience, on Radio One and WKGO Radio on the number one rated travel talk show John guide for anyone of African descent who wants to travel to Africa.
