Ancestry is sponsoring a three-part miniseries that will accompany the Lincoln work, which debuts February 20
Each of the content segments accompanying the “Lincoln” project will be introduced by Christy Coleman, executive director of the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation in Williamsburg, VA, and a contributor to the documentary. In each vignette, descendants of formerly enslaved people in the U.S. discover family connections using recently added Freedman’s Bureau records on Ancestry. They discuss these findings with Nicka Sewell-Smith, a professional genealogist.
This special LIVE performance of The Harder They Fall soundtrack was recorded for Netflix Presents: Playlist; a virtual music showcase across the Netflix film, series, and documentary slate.
