        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.

              The best item in my history collection!

              By 'Rennie

              Comments about PBS The African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross DVD:

              Thanks Dr. Gates for your past and well as this historical classic. "Many Rivers to Cross" is one of my favorites. I was particularly impressed with Part 2 involving the Civil Rights Era. Happy you chose the eloquent Rev. David Forbes to assist in recording our history...and not just a story about our history. Although now retired from his Church, he is yet a fighter for justice here in Raleigh. Please continue your great work!
