Abstract:

Sixth episode of an adaptation of Alex Haley's Roots, in which he traces his family's history from the mid-18th century when one of his ancestors, Kunta Kinte, was captured and sold into slavery. The series follows the struggle for freedom which began with the young man's abduction and was continued by his descendants.

The Civil war is over, but night riders terrorize former slaves. By marking his clients' horseshoes, Tom identifies the raiders, but endangers his own life. Chicken George, who had fought for the Union, rejoins his family; he leads them to a new home in Tennessee, and recites the story of his ancestor, Kunta Kinte. Alex Haley appears to narrate the epilogue.
