It's been excellent.

It was so wrong to bring slaves here - not to mention what we did to the native people.

It does make you wonder how much better world would be if the French, Spanish, and English had just stayed home.

Yes, I have been.watching and it is good. Isabel Wilkerson was being interviewed by Henry Gates. She wrote "The Warmth of Other Suns." I highly recommend that book if you want to know the story of the Great Migration and life under Jim Crow. Unless you lived through it yourself, there is no way you really understand this.

No. Is it a documentary or drama?
