I’m a tv junkie. So, this week I thought I’d share some shows that maybe you should be watching.
Today’s selection is Underground.
Underground is well-written.
Underground is well-acted.
The production quality is top-grade. I mean, each episode is like a well-done 42 minute film.
Every week, at some point in the series, you are reminded- just what don’t you understand about you being PROPERTY?
And, all that means.
Each week it’s like watching 12 Years a Slave. There is a moment that sucks you in the gut, and brings you to the verge of tears, if it doesn’t actually make you cry. There isn’t a moment in the episode where you can detach yourself and be comfortable watching. The layers of evil, the layers of our oppression- all there to see.
I think that it should be given out to schools around the country as a teaching tool about the TRUTH about slavery in America.
For those who criticize Underground because ‘ Haven’t we had enough pieces about slavery?’
I say this: NO. We haven’t had ENOUGH pieces about slavery where THE TRUTH about American Slavery has been told.
