Henry Louis Gates, Jr.
The African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross
“A history that very much needs telling and hearing in these times.” The New York Times
Explore the history of African-American people with Henry Louis Gates, Jr., one of the country’s most influential cultural historians. Gates is the renowned author of 21 books – including his recently-published Stony the Road: Reconstruction, White Supremacy, and the Rise of Jim Crow – and creator of 15 documentaries, including PBS’ Finding Your Roots and Peabody Award-winning The African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross. Gates’ vast narrative spans from the origins of slavery in Africa through the present, as well as the cultural institutions, political strategies and the perspectives African Americans developed against unimaginable odds.
