Customer Review

on 31 March 2004
When I saw the original Roots series many years ago I was shocked and appalled as the story unfolded. This is not a story as we know it but true life. It bought me closer to understanding what horrors African/American/Carribean people went through and in some cases still going through, it stirred emotions and feelings in me that still make me cry when I watch it today. These human beings suffered at the hands of ignorant, uneducated and violent people but through all the suffering have come through into the 21st century strong, defiant, brave and worthy of everything they have today with a greater understanding,knowledge and hunger for life than anyone can ever imagine. More power to them and anyone who has suffered adverse objection. Watch this series and open your mind and your heart. It is truly eye opening and well writted by the wonderful Alex Haley.
