Description

  • Black America Since MLK: And Still I Rise Black America Since MLK: And Still I Rise looks at the last five decades of African American history through the eyes of Henry Louis Gates, Jr., exploring the tremendous gains and persistent challenges of these years. Drawing on eyewitness accounts, scholarly analysis and rare archival footage, the series illuminates our recent past, while raising urgent questions about the future of the African American community--and our nation as a whole.

    How far have we come toward racial equality since the civil rights era? What does it mean to be black today? How did our nation elect a black President--only to see racial conflicts resurface in places like Ferguson and Baltimore?

    All Americans, whatever their race and whenever they were born, want to make sense of this history. Black America Since MLK drives straight to the heart of the matter with uncompromising honesty, rejecting the conventional narrative of our times in a way that is both personal and compelling.
