I missed "African American Lives" on PBS but heard a related interview with Henry Louis Gates on NPR and can't wait to see the series. Alas, Netflix hasn't gotten ahold of it yet...

Oh, yes, Netflix. I forgot about Netflix.

The series is very powerful, Chris. Sort of a scholar's version of "Roots," but very accessible. Now I want to read Gates's books.

I hope you don't mind me commenting on a Black History book of my own. Robert Smalls Sails to Freedom is based on the true story of Robert Smalls, slave turned congressman. It's just out from Millbrook in their On My Own History Series.
