|Henry Louis Gates||Writer|
This extensive documentary series explores the story of African American life and culture in the United States, written and presented by Henry Louis Gates, Jr., director of the W.E. B. Du Bois Institute for African American Research at Harvard University, and exploring the social, political, religious, and economic dimensions that continue to impact race relations to this day.
LOVE this documentary, using it to teach my kids black history since the schools do not do that anymore, sharing the information with family and friends.
I had the unique opportunity to see this program on PBS and it is wonderful, touching a lot of areas not previously seen or heard in my travels to seek the retelling of African-African history for my grandchildren. This DVD is extremely informative, especially in the use of African-American historians.
