I looove this series. Incredibly well done, detailed and interesting. Unfortunately, it can also be depressing when hearing about the hardships suffered by people during slavery, but I choose to look at the glass half full instead and focus on the ever enduring nature of the human spirit. Maybe if I'm lucky, I'll get to interview Henry Louis Gates Jr.! Although it usually airs on Wednesdays, the second show of the second series will be on again Saturday (check your local listings) on PBS. I think there are only three this time around. Some of the individuals include: Maya Angelou, Don Cheadle, Morgan Freeman and Tina Turner. If you want an accurate depiction of what slavery was like without reading a slave narrative (which I highly suggest), check out this series.
