Video: America Beyond the Color Line with Henry Louis Gates Jr.

America Beyond the Color Line with Henry Louis Gates Jr.

Henry Louis Gates Jr., Harvard's chair of Afro- American Studies, travels the length and breadth of the United States to take the temperature of black America at the start of the new century. In four programs, Gates travels to four different parts of America -- the East Coast, the deep South, inner-city Chicago and Hollywood. He explores this rich and diverse landscape, social as well as geographic, and meets the people who are defining black America, from the most famous and influential to those at the grassroots.
