"This video looks at the last five decades of African-American history through the eyes of Henry Louis Gates, Jr., exploring gains and persistent challenges of these years. Questions to be explored include: How far have we come toward racial equality since the civil rights era? How did our nation elect a black President- only to see racial conflicts resurface in places like Ferguson and Baltimore? This video drives straight to the heart of the matter with uncompromising honesty, rejecting the conventional narrative of our times in a way that this is both personal and compelling. (PBS)"
