In 1865 the United States' Civil War and slavery end, but Alex Haley's family history continues. A new chapter begins for the descendants of Kunta Kinte and their quest for full freedom in Roots: The Next Generations. Despite the abolition of slavery, the highly anticipated new world of opportunity fails to materialize for African Americans as another tumultuous century passes. For Kunta Kinte's progeny, a thirst of knowledge drives their epic journey to social justice and civil rights. Co-starring Georg Stanford Brown, Henry Fonda, Olivia de Havilland, Stan Shaw, Irene Cara, James Earl Jones, Debbie Allen, and Marlon Brando, this Emmy Award®-winning production encompasses two world wars, the Great Depression, and the Civil Rights Movement, recounting one man's unforgettable family saga in Roots: The Next Generations. Based on the books Roots and Search by Alex Haley.
