After a few TV flops.

BET is coming back with avenges.

They will air a six part miniseries adaptation of The Book of Negroes based on the award winning novel, written by Lawrence Hill.

Louis Gossett Jr, Cuba Gooding Jr., Ben Chaplin and Aunjanue Ellis will all star in the new series. The Book of Negroes is about Aminata Diallo, she was abducted from her village is West Africa and forced into slavery in South Carolina.

BET is producing this series along with Entertainment One and The CBC.

Now that’s Black Entertainment Television. Today’s youth need to see shows like this. I really don’t think they appreciate  the struggle our ancestors went through so they can have the opportunities that they are granted with today.
