Airing four consecutive nights on HISTORY beginning on Memorial Day, “ROOTS” is a historical portrait of American slavery. The story of Kunta Kinte and the women and men who came after him echoes through the history of millions ofAmericans of African descent, and reveals powerful truths about the universal resilience of the human spirit.
