This combo chronicles the full sweep of 500 years of African American history, from the origins of slavery on the African continent and the arrival of the first black conquistador, Juan Garrido, in Florida in 1513, through five centuries of remarkable historic events right up to today-when Barack Obama is serving his second term as President, yet our country remains deeply divided by race and class.

A true telling of American History

By Khill

from Dallas, Texas

Verified Reviewer

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

The program was excellent. This series touched on African American history as it related to the south and the north. It also explained how slavery and cotton had an impact on the Native American.

This program would make a wonderful addition to every library in America.

Everyone Must See This NOW!

By Coach

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

How do we get this information as part of the curriculum at every grade level in schools in America? I was sad to see the evil of so many Americans and wonder why it still exists. How did England encourage slavery for the cotton industry and abolish it without a Civil War? What would be the outcome of a fair judicial and education system? What would providing decent housing and good food to underserved and under represented people mean to change America? We need to heal the wounds and begin to really make America special.

Required Education

By Fred

from Atlanta, GA

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

EVERY black person in America should watch this! If more us knew this slice of our history, I think it would start to change much of the behavior we see - not only in us but in their treatment of us. Some young black boys would pull their pants up; some would take greater advantage of their educational opportunities; we would begin to trust each other again and re-learn how to spend our money with each other and use that money to raise up our virtual-communities. Copies of this video should be in every library in every public school in America!
