This modern-day retelling of the award-winning 1977 television miniseries classic is the story of African teen Kunta Kinte, his life and legacy.

Captured by slave traders while collecting firewood for his family’s dinner, Kinte was ripped from his homeland and brought to America where he was sold to a plantation owner in northern Virginia. Throughout the course of the series, we witness each stage of Kunta Kinte’s life, from teen to man to father to grandfather, following his legacy through the Civil War.

This remake will introduce a new generation to this beloved story of family, dignity and the price of freedom."

History is on Starhub Channel 401.
