This is an engaging and highly informative series on a lot of history I didn''t learn about in school. As a mentor of mine recently said, most of African American history was 20 minutes of study in an hour long class in a year long curriculum. It is largely under-emphasized and ignored and as a result, I was simply ignorant of much of this history. But while this focuses on the African American history, it reveals much about our shared experience (though from a different side). I am so glad I watched it and I recommend it to others as a great starting point of study.

The format is fast moving, the content is engaging and ranges from incredibly serious to light hearted and funny. One thing that it remains all the way through, though, is human and honest. It tells history through the human stories of history, and as a result I found myself not just learning about the events of our nation''s past, but relating to and empathizing with the unlikely and largely unknown heroes that rose up out of those events. It has also helped me understand our current national racial struggles in a new way as I can see a little better how the shared history of African Americans really does continue today. Even though the stones of slavery, Jim Crow, 40 acres and a mule, the great migration, and the tension between King and Malcolm X, Rosa Parks, and Black Harlem (to name just a bare few) were tossed in the pond of national experience in our past, the ripples of those events continue to shake our culture today.

My only complaint about this series was that it was too short. It left me wanting to learn more about our history and the important people whose stories have largely not been told. I guess that is, in the end, a good thing because it prompts me to more study. But I would love to see them release a second season!

If you are interested in learning more about history, understanding more about the tensions that are gripping our country today, or just love a good human story - you should watch this. I can''t recommend it highly enough especially if you haven''t spent much time looking into the rich and vibrant history of the African American experience.

This country will finally be mature when the contents of this series are standard in every school. African Americans, as well as Native Americans and all immigrants of whatever origin, are what makes this country tick.
School taught me none of this, and it didn''t teach you, either. Let''s change.

My respect goes out to Henry Louis Gates, Jr., just as it has many times before.

OUTSTANDING CONTENT!!! WONDERFULLY PRESENTED!!! EXTREMELY HARD TRUTHS, HEARTBREAKING PHOTOS AND STORIES.... MANY AMERICANS ARE IGNORANT OF THIS INFORMATION, PERHAPS BY DESIGN RATHER THAN CHOICE.
THIS DVD SERIES SHOULD BE VIEWED AND DISCUSSED IN EVERY HIGH SCHOOL IN THE UNITED STATES AT MINIMUM.
I BELIEVE THAT SOME OF THE CONTENT WOULD NOT BE APPROPRIATE FOR MIDDLE SCHOOL CHILDREN, DUE IN PART TO SOME OF THE HORRIFYING PHOTOS AND MANY OF THE EVENT ACCOUNTS AS THE DESCRIPTIONS ARE VERY DETAILED AND WOULD BE VERY DISTURBING AND ALARMING TO MANY TENDER CONSCIENCES...TO KNOW OF THE DEGREE OF INHUMANE TREATMENT MANY MEN, WOMEN, AND CHILDREN, SUFFERED AT THE HANDS OF OTHER HUMAN BEINGS....

I bought this set of DVDs to learn more about African Americans and their history, and it is very comprehensive and full of facts, but easy to follow and understand! I am a person who is pretty weak in my knowledge of history, and I was able to follow the facts and learn a lot from these DVDs.
There is old footage and Henry Louis Gates, Jr. also visits many of the historical places covered throughout the video and interviews numerous historians. Very engaging and effective in my opinion!
I subsequently found out that my sister, who teaches American History in a private high school in New York, uses clips from "Many Rivers to Cross" online with her students. She said it is very effective for that purpose also. Highly recommended.

A fantastic history, particularly in the early segments, because the early history of slavery in Africa and the Carribean as well as North America (pre-cotton gin) is so different from the later ugly phase of slavery in the southern US which we have all learned much more about. Similarly, I found the early phase of post civil war reconstruction history (pre-Jim Crow) to be a revelation, the way the country was moving in a good direction before it reversed everything. So was the history of the Great Migration which so affected the Northern cities I grew up in. I learned a lot of other details Anout American history, and ended up in awe of what African Americans got through, which was the whole point of the series. Really well done.

I first saw this compilation of informative selections on PBS and knew I wanted to purchase and share with others. Given the amount of possible available information for time periods in African American culture, the choices are extremely interesting. The timelines used help those of us who may not be as well informed about historical years as we presumed. Thoughtful, informative and captivating.
