Do you know which of your ancestors was the first to set foot in America? It’s a good question — one that country music legend Reba McEntire is hoping to answer for her mother. But the history she uncovers isn’t always pleasant, and Reba discovers that her own family connections lead to a pair of bleak facts in American history: slavery and indentured servitude.
