Beginning with Africa’s ancient history as the cradle of mankind, this documentary series with Henry Louis Gates, Jr. brings to life the epic stories of both little-known and celebrated African kingdoms and cultures.
This is a documentary that I would recommend to anybody that wants to know the true history of Africa and its civilizations not just in North Africa but in Sub-Saharan Africa due to the negative, ignorant & racial stereotypes the western media has of black africans in sub-saharan Africa, so I feel this documentary was long over due and had to be done as far as I am concerned to shut down what the western media has been spreadding for many years about Africa especially about Black africans. I feel Professor Gates did a great job and this documentary is worth every penny.
Incredibly informative...a lovely assemblage of stories that need to be told about Black African creativity, ingenuity, and resilience from antiquity to today. Watching this show, I was surprised by the number of "I didn't know that" moments. I find myself filled with pride in our ancestors and inspired to learn more. I recommend this documentary to all interested in human history.
