“Roots” Was Not A Gardening Show, But It Did Help Grow Understanding

ROOTS Special This Friday Night

NBC will commemorate the 25th anniversary of the ABC miniseries ROOTS this Friday night at 8 with an hour-long documentary special. ROOTS: CELEBRATING 25 YEARS: THE SAGA OF AN AMERICAN CLASSIC is hosted by LeVar Burton and features interviews with stars Ben Vereen, Richard Roundtree, Ed Asner, as well as assorted celebrities whose lives were affected by the mini.

The only question I have is why ABC isn’t airing the special?
