Thirty Years…and counting

March 9, 2015

Levar-Burton-in-Roots

Remember this? If you’re over 50, you do. This year is the 30th anniversary of the unveiling of the TV mini-series, “Roots”. Remember how it mesmerized an entire nation? I certainly do.  So, I bought a copy of the show recently – just to see if it’s still as powerful as it was 30 years ago… and it is. The impact of this beautifully written, directed, and performed piece of history is still so strong…. And the 30th anniversary copy has interviews with cast and crew offering some heartfelt remembrances and startling reflections on the long term effects of the series. If you can find a 30th anniversary copy – buy it. Share it with your children; your grandchildren… and remember.
