About this item

Important Made in USA Origin Disclaimer: For certain items sold by Walmart on Walmart.com, the displayed country of origin information may not be accurate or consistent with manufacturer information. For updated, accurate country of origin data, it is recommended that you rely on product packaging or manufacturer information.
There are two sides to every story, the saying goes. For Alex Haley, one side was "Roots," the towering chronicle tracing seven generations of his mother's family. The other side comes to the screen in "Alex Haley's Queen," the remarkable history of a paternal side of the author's family. David L. Wolper ("Roots," "The Thorn Birds") is the executive producer of this acclaimed adaptation of the story Haley was working on when he died. Halle Berry plays Queen, daughter of a slave (Jasmine Guy) and a plantation owner (Tim Daly). During the turbulent decades of the antebellum South, the Civil war, Reconstruction and beyond, she searches for a home in the two cultures of her heritage - and at times is shunned by both. Rejection and hate are no match for her unconquerable will, however. Ann-Margret, Danny Glover, and Ossie Davis are among the many stars of this poignant, uplifting final chapter of the Haley legacy.
