Too Many Rivers To Cross

Norman Rockwell

I was undecided about whether to watch the new six-part documentary, The African Americans: Many Rivers To Cross, which begins tonight and continues weekly through Nov. 26. Henry Louis Gates Jr. (Remember the guy who was arrested for breaking into his own home?) has organized 500 years of history into six hours.

There is nothing better than a well-done PBS program but after reading both of these reviews, one from Variety and the other from The LATimes, I think I’ll go see the new movie 12 Years A Slave instead.
