  • In honor of Black History Month, enjoy looking at the last five decades of African American history through the eyes of Henry Louis Gates, Jr., exploring the tremendous gains and persistent challenges of these years. Drawing on eyewitness accounts, scholarly analysis and rare archival footage, this illuminates the recent past, while raising urgent questions about the future of the African American community—and our nation as a whole.

    Move on Up: Dramatizing the diverging paths for African Americans and outbursts of white backlash that emerged in the 1970's and early ‘80's. Gates explores how African Americans found a new source of hope from the creation of hip-hop.
