Summary Note "ROOTS is a historical portrait of American slavery recounting the journey of one family's will to survive, endure and ultimately, carry on their legacy despite enormous hardship and inhumanity. Spanning multiple generations, the lineage begins with young Kunta Kinte, who is captured in his homeland of The Gambia and sold into slavery. Throughout the series, the family continues to face adversity that reveals powerful truths about the universal resilience of the human spirit." --
