              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.

                                I watched all episodes. Reliving my history - sometimes laughing, sometimes crying. I purchased the book for myself and the DVD set for my grands, plus gave both as a gift to my Pastor. I also passed the how to purchase info to our Youth Pastor so he could share with the young people in our church

                                      Mr. Gates, Kudos to you for always educating me and so many others. I never liked History growing up in the 80's but I love it now and I'm watching this program on my local network outside of philadelphia pa. I want to see the program in it's entirety and support PBS. Thanks to you both for programs such as this. I am out of work now but I consider this an investment.
