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.
