Timeless 'ROOTS' Can Now Be Seen On HULU

ROOTS is a timeless story about a family and their journey from Africa to America that spans multiple generations. No matter how many years pass, the love of family and the importance of tradition always remain.  The holidays are a time to spend with loved ones and cherish the time spent with them. A moving, inspirational saga for the whole family, ROOTS is the perfect  conversation starter for talking about our own family roots and the blessings brought to us through the love of family. 
To make the ROOTS experience even more meaningful, explore your own family's roots - talk to the elders, grandparents and find out the history of your ancestors, trace your family tree through a genealogy web site. 
Alex Hayley, author of the book Roots: The Saga of an American Family, put it best when he said , "In every conceivable manner, the family is a link to our past, bridge to our future."  

Learn about the power of family here and don’t forget to watch ROOTS on HULU, which lets you pause , rewind and watch at your leisure.

Synopsis: The classic story of "Roots" is retold in this miniseries based on Alex Haley's 1976 novel. The show paints a portrait of American slavery through the journey of a family that has a will to survive through many hardships. Malachi Kirby stars as Kunta Kinte, a proud and educated young man who uses those traits to empower himself when he is captured and sold into slavery. While he is enslaved, he challenges his fellow slaves to fight for their freedom as he continues working toward achieving his dream of escaping and returning to his homeland of The Gambia. The miniseries also stars Emmy winner Laurence Fishburne as Haley; Grammy nominee Anika Noni Rose as Kunta's daughter, Kizzy, who is bought by Tom Lea (Jonathan Rhys Meyers), who rapes and impregnates her; and Oscar winner Forest Whitaker as slave musician Fiddler, who mentors Kunta.
