Description

ROOTS is a historical portrait of American slavery recounting the journey of one family's will to survive, endure and ultimately, carry on their legacy despite enormous hardship and inhumanity. Spanning multiple generations, the lineage begins with young Kunta Kinte, who is captured in his homeland of The Gambia and sold into slavery. Throughout the series, the family continues to face adversity that reveals powerful truths about the universal resilience of the human spirit.

** Reviews**

“The effort put forth by the writers, actors, and filmmakers have updated and reimagined the miniseries to be a powerful reminder of the past and how stories like Roots deserve to be retold.” – ScreenRant

“Indispensable, infuriating, and inspiring, Roots masterfully finds the hope and humanity in its heartbreaking, harrowing depiction of slavery, and in doing so provides an update worthy of the original.” – We Got This Covered

“After spending about eight hours embedded with four generations of men and women, beaten down but not broken, bonded by blood and tradition, I feel genuinely affected. With so much storytelling out there, that's no small feat.” – Vulture
