Roots
Before the 12 hour presentation won 9 Emmy Awards and a Golden Globe for Best TV Series - Drama, Roots was the most-watched TV show in US history. This epic series portrayed the lives of a slave family beginning with Kunta Kinte’s kidnapping from his African village . Did you know that the actors playing Kizzy, George, and Tom Harvey were actually born within three years of each other? This means that “Tom” was actually three years older than his “father” and “Kizzy” was only three years older than her “son.” Learn more about Roots at the TV Out of the Box exhibit at the Paley Center!
