To help advance an important and necessary dialogue about race and our nation’s heritage, Bank of America is sponsoring “The African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross,” a compelling new series written and produced by noted African American history scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. and airing on PBS from Oct. 22 to Nov. 26. Professor Gates is the Alphonse Fletcher University Professor at Harvard University and director of the W.E.B. Du Bois Institute for African and African American Research at Harvard.
Many Rivers, airing in six parts, explores 500 years of African American history, starting with the beginning of the slave trade to the New World to the present day, when America is led by an African American president yet remains a nation at times divided by race.
