              I stumbled across the series on PBS on Saturday afternoon and I couldn't stop watching! I only was able to see the last 3 episodes and I cannot wait to receive the DVD & BOOK set! It pains me that this is our history and I have to try to calm myself down because it makes me so angry what my people had to go through! I'm going to show this to my son when he is older & use this as a learning tool. There is a lot of work that still needs to be done. Blacks especially men are still killed with no justice I pray that this changes by the time my son gets older.

                    I purchased this wonderful dvd for my birthday and a teaching tool to share with my family. I do not want my kids and grandkids to wait as long as I had to live to learn such amazing information. We all need to watch it, process what we see and begin to talk and work to make the next story better. I have so many questions and hope to find answers. Thank you PBS for broadcasting such wonderful programs.

                          I used this for a family oriented Black History Month event. It generated lots of discussions. I am pleased with the content and will use over and over.

                                We gave the DVDs to our two sons (kept one for ourselves) for Christmas. I think they arrived 3 days after we ordered them. Couldn't believe the speedy delivery! Thanks for the great gift!

                                      I felt so many emotions watching this. Sadness, anger, frustration---but also pride and admiration at our courage and determination to be treated fairly. This would be a great gift, especially for families.
