Henry Louis Gates, Jr. presents the definitive history of the transformative years following the American Civil War, when the nation struggled to rebuild itself amidst profound loss, massive destruction and revolutionary social change.
The first two hours of the series will center on this pivotal decade following the rebellion, charting black progress and highlighting the accomplishments of the many political leaders who emerged to usher their communities into this new era of freedom. The series’ second half will look beyond that hopeful decade, when the arc of history bent backwards.
We are proud to have provided the soundtrack to this two-part, four-hour series about the bold, democratic experiment that was Reconstruction.
