About this item

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(R) 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.

Documentary.

"'Roots: The Next Generations' - The Legacy Continues".

This is a wonderful sequel to a story that inspired a nation. I was able to share the Roots story with my child and watch it as we did in the 70's. Spread out over a week! It was a great way to spend some quality time with the family.
