How We Determine Our Grades

Released in 1977, the miniseries Roots tells the story of Africans captured and shipped across the sea as slaves. Both Freedom Song (which portrays four African-American university students who challenged segregation by sitting at a white lunch counter in Mississippi) and Something the Lord Made (that depicts medical discoveries made by an African-American), deal with the lingering prejudices faced by the descendents of former slaves.
