Follows the struggle for freedom that began with the boy's abduction in Africa to America and continued throughout the generations that followed. Roots, the next generations follows the Haley family from the post-Civil War era until the more contemporary but still turbulent time of the 1960s and '70s, when Alex himself begins his research into the discovery of his roots. Roots: the gift (an expansion of the Roots saga with a Christmas theme three years after Kunta Kinte's first unsuccessful attempt to escape slavery) has Kunta Kinte and Fiddler desperately leading runaways through a network of safe havens to a getaway boat.
