Nas is Showed a Receipt for his great great grand mother during slavery

The latest person to find his roots on the show on PBS “Finding your roots”, is Nas. He was showed a receipt of purchase for his late great great grand mother during slavery. She was sold for 830$. He is even showed a picture of the man who bought her, the house who burned down and even the first thing they did when they first became free.

It must be so hard to see this. We are fortunate that times have changed. Other celebrities such has Angela Basset has taken part of the show.
