Editorial Reviews

Christmas Eve 1775. For the celebrants at Parker Plantation, it's a time of joy and giving. For enslaved friends Fiddler and Kunta Kinte, it's a chance to give to other slaves the most precious gift of all: freedom. The Roots saga expands in a holiday-themed drama based on characters from Alex Haley's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. Louis Gossett, Jr. reprises the role of resourceful American-born slave Fiddler. LeVar Burton again plays Kunta Kinte, the Mandinka warrior who hopes to someday return home to Africa. Year: 1988 Director: Kevin Hooks Starring: Louis Gossett Jr., LeVar Burton, Avery Brooks
