“Roots” revisited…

It’s been more than 35 years since Alex Haley’s “Roots” first aired as a television mini-series.
I saw parts of it during its first run. This weekend, the “Black Entertainment Network (BET)” has been offering it again. TIVO is capturing all the chapters for me. I’ve watch 3 of them so far. The 36-year-old “Roots” still is powerful, entertaining television! Kunta Kinte’s and the Fiddler’s experiences hurt even more the second time around.
