Winning nine Emmys and viewed by more than 130 million Americans, the NBC mini-series ROOTS greatly impacted American views of slavery and the black experience. It was followed by this massive 14-hour mini-series two years later later in 1979. Although not as popular as the original, this series did garner high ratings and earned an Emmy for Marlon Brando and a nomination for Ruby Dee. Beginning in 1882 where the original series left off, this epic tale follows the African-American experience after the slaves were freed, but when their opportunities were still greatly limited. The journey takes the audience through the life of writer Alex Haley (played by James Earl Jones), including a dramatic concluding episode studying the influence of Malcolm X, and Haley's discovery of Kunta Kinte.

  • roots The Next Generations

    I really enjoyed this movie. I was surprised the way Alex and his father got along. .. It was so intense when he interviewd Malcom X and the, head of the KU Klux Klan. It picked up where Roots left off..I recommend this to anyone who saw Roots to see this.

  • A great lesson in history!

    What an awesome account of Alex Haley's more recent family history. It is less violent than Roots, because it's not as much about slavery as it is the struggle to overcome racism in a slavery free country. This is a great part of the Roots experience. They even talk about "Queen", Haley's grandmother, & show her role in Haley's geneology. (There is also a show based on her life is called Queen starring Halle Berry & is equally worth watching.) And then there's other themes that are so realistic. Simon & Alex seem to have an adversarial relationship that is so typical of parents & children. Alex seemed to lack a vision for his life that his ancestors seemed to have all their lives. His struggle to find his vision serves as an incredible lesson to us all that it's never too late! Well worth the money!
