Watch the epic, century-spanning saga of Alex Haley’s family with Roots, Roots: The Gift and Alex Haley's Queen this holiday on BET.

Roots tells the story of the journey of Alex Haley’s family from Africa to America, from slavery to freedom. An incredible cast, which includes Cicely Tyson, John Amos, Maya Angelou and LeVar Burton, helps make Roots a must-see event for any generation.

Roots: The Gift features LeVar Burton reprising his role as Kunta Kinte, who is now charged with helping to free a group of slaves.

Alex Haley's Queen stars Halle Berry as Alex Haley’s paternal grandmother, a biracial slave who lives through the civil war and later becomes free and tries to pass as a white woman. The companion series to Roots also stars Christopher Allport, Dennis Haysbert and Danny Glover.
