ROOTS 25TH ANNIVERSARY
This morning on the Today Show, Katie Couric interview Leslie Uggums in reference to ROOTS 25th Anniversary. The 5 min. interview should have been an hour or more. While showing the different scenes, you can see the restriant of tears in her eyes when explaining the emotional impact that the actors and actresses had during and after filming the mini-series at that time. Roots, the book as well as the mini-series, opened our minds to a world of facts. This was a series that changed all African Americans. Because of the power of intellect and persistant exposure of who Black people really are, Alex Haley will always be honored in our history. That is why we have web sites such as Afrigenenous to keep us informed and to keep our history true to heart with all research and discoveries of our own people.
