The African Americans and Black in Latin America Presented by Henry Louis Gates, Jr

The African Americans series explores the evolution of the African-American people, as well as the multiplicity of cultural institutions, political strategies, and religious and social perspectives they developed - forging their own history, culture and society against unimaginable odds. Commencing with the origins of slavery in Africa, the series moves through five centuries of remarkable historic events right up to the present, when America is led by a black president, yet remains a nation deeply divided by race. Throughout the course of the series, viewers will see that the road to freedom for black people in America has not been linear, but more like the course of a river, full of loops and eddies, slowing, and occasionally reversing the current of progress.

Black in Latin America is about the African influence on Latin America. From renowned Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates, Jr., the series examines how indigenous, African, and European people came together to create the rich cultures of Latin America and the Caribbean. Latin America is often associated with music, monuments, and sun, but each of the six countries featured in Black in Latin America--Haiti, Dominican Republic, Cuba, Brazil, Mexico, and Peru--has a secret history. On his journey, Professor Gates discovers that behind a shared legacy of colonialism and slavery are vivid stories and people marked by African roots.

I sat on my bed all night long to watch and hear all the dvd shared. Who knew that people from Africa were everywhere and made a great and lasting impact. Great Job!. I tell everyone who will listen and plan to share my book and dvd with everybody. We have a lot to talk about.

Very informative and interesting series. Henry Louis Gates Jr. Is an engaging host. However, the packaging was extremely cheap. Very basic and no frills. The Dvds kept falling out of the box because it wasnt even wrapped in plastic. My rating is for the series, not the box it came in.
