Well, in my history class were watching this film, "Roots", for black history month. It's mainly based around slavery and how slaves got treated. My history teacher even went on to say that Roots was the most watched movie/series of its time, more people viewing it then than the amount of people that watch The Superbowl.

If you've seen/heard of this movie/series, please tell me your thoughts on it.

I have seen every single part of that movie.

In my senior year of HS I had a class called History through Film and the teacher showed this series. I liked it and was mad when I found out none of that happened. lol.

It was really insightful though and I think it portrayed how slaves were treated quite well.
