Roots Returns

I recently read that History, A&E, and Lifetime are putting together a remake of the hit mini series Roots.  I think this comes at very interesting moment in U.S. history in which people are willing to remain uninformed of America's consistently turbulent relationship with race and ignore the incredibly racially charged environment of today in exchange for an imagined "colorblind"/"post-race" narrative.

Here's the link to the article if anyone is interested:

  1. I had the same thought! I am also interested in what Lifetime will bring to this collaboration.
