2020 presidential candidate Cory Booker said it was “amazing” to discover that he was of Sierra Leonean descent. He learned of his ancestry through a DNA analysis conducted by geneticist, Rick Kittles, and it was presented to him on the PBS program, Finding Your Roots.

Booker is the first African-American Senator from New Jersey and the first of Sierra Leonean descent to seek the office of President of the United States.
