MORE THAN 500 YEARS OF AFRICAN AMERICAN HISTORY ARE COVERED IN THIS GROUNDBREAKING SERIES.

F

rom the beginning of the slave trade in Africa to the United States’ first black president, Harvard scholar and professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr. follows the evolution of African Americans. Through visits to historic sites, debates with historians, and interviews with eyewitnesses of important civil rights moments, The African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross paints a full picture. The name for the six-part series comes from the idea that “the road to freedom for black people in America was not linear, but more like the course of a river, full of loops and eddies, slowing, and occasionally reversing the current of progress.”

THE BLACK ATLANTIC (1500–1800) Sunday, February 5 at 7 p.m. Thursday, February 9 at 8 p.m. Within a century, the Trans-Atlantic slave trade became a vast empire connecting three continents. Trace the emergence of plantation slavery in America and examine what the Era of Revolutions—American, French, and Haitian—would mean for African Americans, and for slavery in America.

6

MAKING A WAY OUT OF NO WAY (1897–1940) Monday, February 6 at 7 p.m. Friday, February 10 at 7 p.m. The Jim Crow era was when African Americans struggled to build their own worlds within the harsh, narrow confines of segregation. Successful black institutions were always at risk. At the same time, the ascendance of black arts and culture showed that a community with a strong identity was taking hold.

THE AGE OF SLAVERY (1800–1860) Sunday, February 5 at 8:30 p.m. Thursday, February 9 at 9:30 p.m. As slavery intensified, so did resistance. From individual acts to mass rebellions, African Americans demonstrated their determination to undermine and ultimately eradicate slavery in every state in the nation. Courageous individuals forced the issue of slavery to the forefront of national politics.

RISE! (1940–1968) Monday, February 6 at 8:30 p.m. Friday, February 10 at 8:30 p.m. Beginning in World War II, African Americans who helped fight fascism abroad came home to face the same old racial violence. But this time, mass media—from print to radio and TV—broadcast that injustice to the world, planting seeds of resistance. By 1968, a new call for “Black Power” was unleashed.

INTO THE FIRE (1861–1896) Sunday, February 5 at 9:30 p.m. Thursday, February 9 at 10:30 p.m. African Americans were agents of their own liberation. After Emancipation, they sought to realize the promise of freedom—rebuilding families shattered by slavery. They demanded economic, political, and civil rights. Shortly after, an intransigent South mounted a swift and vicious reign of terror.

A MORE PERFECT UNION (1968–2013) Monday, February 6 at 9:30 p.m. Friday, February 10 at 9:30 p.m. African Americans set out to build a bright new future on the foundation of the civil rights movement’s victories. They came together to support Illinois Senator Barack Obama in his historic presidential campaign. When he won in 2008, many hoped that America had finally transcended race and racism.

In 1993, President Bill Clinton appointed Holder as U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia. Several years later, Clinton named him Deputy Attorney General. Holder was the first African American to hold this position. Holder then became the first African American Attorney General on February 3, 2009, after President Barack Obama nominated him.
