Roots - Mini Series - Premieres Memorial Day 2016 - History Channel, A and E and Lifetime


A must see for all. We have several generations of Americans who are clueless about this dark time in their nations history. Our school system has all, but deleted any historical reference regarding slavery in the United States. The subject matter, much like the Holocaust, has never really been a serious form of study in our public / private schools. 

Whether anyone likes it or not, this is part of America's history. It is the story of a people who, because of their strength and courage survived a horrific period in our country's birth. Afro Americans / Blacks - should be proud. Because of our Ancestor's sacrifice and determination, still we rise! 


        Levar Burton - as Kunta Kinte - 1977 ~ Malachy Kirby as Kunta Kinte - 2016

Blacks are and were more than Slaves. We are an integral thread in the fabric that is America. 
"Do not remove the ancient landmark that your ancestors set up." Hebrew, Proverbs 22:28


"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it" - George Santayana

Starts Memorial Day 9/8 c - Four night mini - series. 9 p.m. beginning on Monday, May 30 on History, A&E and Lifetime. Check your local listings for channel and time information.
