The Shaker Heights High School NAACP Youth Council is hosting the four-episode series of the 2016 History Channel production of “Roots,” a reboot of the original film by the same name that first aired 40 years ago. “Roots” chronicles the history of an African man sold into slavery in America and his descendants. Viewers journey through our nation's dark history to ultimately discover the triumph of generations of African Americans. The series will begin after school on Thursday, February 1 from 3:15-4:45 and run each of the following three Thursdays in the High School Small Auditorium. All are welcome and encouraged to attend.
