His name was Kunta Kinte. Kidnapped from Africa and enslaved in America in 1767, he refused to accept his slave name of Toby. Heirs kept his heroic defiance alive, whispering the name of Kunta Kinte from one generation to the next until it reached a young boy growing up in Tennessee. His name was Alex Haley. And he proclaimed Kunta Kinte's name to the world.

Through the lineage of one family, Haley and his Pulitzer Prize-winning Roots told a story for all America. The powerful tale (seen by 130 million viewers during its inital U.S. telecasts) begins in Gambia, West Africa. Kunta Kinte (LeVar Burton), son of Omoro and Binta, distinguishes hinself in manhood training rituals. But he does not enjoy his new status long: slave traders sweeping through the countryside capture him. Chained with other unfortunates, Kunta begins an agonized odyssey to the New World.
