It s a television movie but it is one of the most beautiful movie I have seen. I came to know about the books Alex Haley and his book “Roots: The Saga of an American Family” from the movie. I learned about Steve Biko, South African anti-apartheid activist from this movie. This movie is made in a small frame but absolutely beautiful. It is so great that we end the world of Apartheid. It is must watch for kids.

This movie was so real i was too involved in my feelings at the end when the Ron Dellums was talking about the birds with different color living together. It was a true story that actually happened. I heard that Mahree Bok got killed working for Black people. I may be wrong too. Must watch though not a flamboyant movie.
