The African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross

The African AmericansBuilding upon existing research and drawing from recent scholarship, Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr. guides viewers on an engaging journey across continents and centuries to shed new light on the experience of being African American.

Contrary to what is commonly thought, the road to freedom for blacks in America was not linear, but instead, like the course of a river, full of loops and eddies, with progress slowing (often suddenly) and at times, reversing.

African American history encompasses multiple locations and venues, and must be viewed through a transnational perspective to be fully understood.
