When I saw ROOTS in 1978 and THE NEXT GENERATIONS in 1979, I was really shocked to the truth that actually happened among Black Americans. Lynching and killing scenes were very hard for me, but I was deeply impressed to Alex Haley's ancestors - Chicken George, Tom Harvey, W.E. Palmer. One thing they had in common is �gWe is free!�h Thanks to the excellent castings and teleplay, I play the tapes almost everyday even when I feel depressed. Georg Stanford Brown, Stan Shaw, Marc Singer, Richard Thomas, James Earl Jones --- their performance are really impressive! In addition, Paul Koslo as Earl Crowther and Fay Hauser as Carrie Barden-Warner, and THE GREAT HENRY FONDA as Col. Frederick Warner, are also impressive, too. Don't miss this opportunity. Buy one now!

I believe a review worth reading should include a brief description of the person giving their thoughts.To me,this helps a great deal in deciding how much credibility I will give a person's thinking.
I am a white male,48 years old,happily married going on nineteen years with five children and six grandchildren.I was born in the state of Texas,and raised to befriend people based on their actions-not the color of their skin.I,like most people,have been influenced often times by what has been taught through traditions or hearsay instead of facts,because facts often times takes some effort to discover.
I have just recently read the book Roots,and was so overcome by a multitude of aroused emotions I purchased the mini-series on DVD.My wife,children and I viewed the movies together,and have had many wonderful discussions since.It has been my experience to find movies made from books usually deficient,and so altered to make for 'better viewing' I often have some trepidation of giving my time to them.Roots was/is such a refreshing surprise in that both the movie(s) and the book are so very close in keeping with the original materials.
Mr. Alex Haley was truely a gifted person in his ability to share a story.I only wish he were yet still alive,so I could personally write him a note expressing my profound graditude in his taking the time to educate,entertain and awaken in me a compassion for a people I only thought I knew.
There is brief frontal nudity which may offend some,but in keeping with cultural historical accuracy is but a small negative in a wealth of positives.The casting and acting is above excellence.I could go on with much more accolades,but then I would be writing a novel and not a review.

The Next Generation was Very Interesting especially During World War 1&2.also The Openess of HATE Was Reflected Upon ALex Haley's Return&Other Black Men who fought for this Country.Always Being Regarded as A Second-Class Citzen No Matter What Battle or Knowledge.The Lynchings&Killings are Hard Too View.ALex Haley Meeting&Talking With Malcolm X is Something SPecial.The Journey Continues as Does The Struggle but It's Important FOr America&The Whole World Too Better Understand it Before it Happens Again.

My mother (she turned 90 on 1/4/02) and I recently re-watched this series, after we re-watched ROOTS. It/they meant much more to us now, looking back through 20+ years of our own experiences along with recent history. The casting was superb, as is the story, even though a lot of it was ugly. It evoked very strong emotions. The different time periods were recreated realistically. I was sorry that Alex Haley is no longer alive. I would have wanted to contact him. I can only hope that he was aware of the power and depth of the legacy he left. Such important works. Mama and I vowed anew to remove hate (ignorance) from our own lives and in our circles.

I have watched all them. Plus the new generation of Roots. Excellent move when it came out and still has so much meaning even in todays lifestyle.

After I had gone through that series, I felt I had a better understanding of an era I was not fully aware of and was somewhat embarressed at what they had endured in what I thought was a civilized country.
