Sarah Jessica Parker, Mary Beth Norton, and the Salem Witch Trials

Tenured Radical is reporting that on the Friday night (March 5) episode of the new NBC series “Who Do You Think You Are,” Cornell early American historian Mary Beth Norton will inform actress Sarah Jessica Parker that she is the descendant of one of the Salem witches.

Good to see historians on network television!

  1. I too was excited to see this TV spot recently… until I realized that “Who Do You Think You Are” is a blatant rip-off of Henry Louis Gates Jr.'s “Faces of America.”

    Still, a potentially interesting series.
