The gripping story is told through four generations, from the capture of Kunta Kinte in Africa to his transport to Colonial America in brutal conditions through successive generations fighting to win their freedom in the Civil war. Based on Alex Haley's best-selling novel which has resonated with millions of Americans, it reveals powerful, universal truths about the resilience of the human spirit.

Covers a lot of ground in four longish episodes (did not watch the specials on disk three). Very well done all-around. A bit dry/sterile; didn't have the same level of emotional engagement with this series as with the original "Roots," but solid depiction of a shameful time in America.
