ROOTS

If you’re not out enjoying the hopefully beautiful weather or hopping from cookout to cookout this Memorial Day like I plan to do ūüôā then you should checkout Roots the miniseries remake. Executive producer of the new series LaVar Burton actually acted¬†in the original miniseries as Kunta Kinte. Roots aired in¬†1977 to a captive audience, the eighteen episode series follows one African American family’s journey from the mid 18th century¬†in Africa to the late 19th century, early 20th century in America. The miniseries was based off of author Alex Haley’s novel Roots: The Saga of an American Family.¬†There have been some debates about¬†the historical accuracy as well as plagiarism in the novel. ¬†Regardless I am still looking forward to seeing the remake¬†Roots of this iconic TV miniseries, take a peek at the trailer below.
