Product Overview

Could there be a worthy follow-up to the most-watched miniseries ever? We felt the other did so well Alex Haley said that we should just let it hang there. But Haley began carrying around a tape recorder dictating more of his family s tales as they came to his memory. Those remembrances filled a 1 000-page transcript: raw material for Roots: The Next Generations.Winner of the Emmy for Best Limited Series this landmark continuation of a landmark event - with 53 stars and 235 speaking parts - is in many respects a superior achievement Newsweek said in comparing this to Roots. Twenty-five years later it has lost none of its dramatic and emotional power to make us confront history and examine ourselves. One man s family remains everyone s!Running Time: 685 min.

Editors Note
Note 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.
