HENRY LOUIS GATES ANNOUNCES 3-PART DOCUMENTARY "AFRICA'S GREAT CIVILIZATIONS" TO AIR ON PBS FEBRUARY 27 (1401 hits)

Henry Louis Gates, Jr. has been known to document and chronicle the stories of African, African American people, and those who wanted to know from where they came from. Now, in a bid to add color and context to our legacy, Skip Gates teamed up with PBS to put out a 3-part/6-hour documentary series titled Africa’s Great Civilizations. For him, he aims to tell the stories of an African continent prior to colonization and the Trans-Atlantic slave trade. Tales about the Saadi dynasty in Morocco, the Sultanate of Sennar in Sudan and the Oyo, Benin and Ashanti empires in West Africa highlight this experience, which will be must see TV surely.

To add another bit of polish to the forthcoming doc, Gates + PBS have released a trailer that takes audiences into the different parts of the continent. Without spoiler much of what the series will be, for those who aren’t vested in African history, there will be much to uncover. “This series is a breathtaking and personal journey through history that includes evidence of the earliest human culture and art, arguably the world’s greatest ever civilizations and kingdoms, and some of the world’s earliest writing,” the official summary states.

Mark your calendar for this three-night event, as Africa’s Great Civilizations airs beginning Feb. 27 – Mar. 1 from 9:00 – 11:00 p.m. ET.
