Roots: The Gift

Roots: The Gift

1988, Drama
It is Christmas 1775 in the American South, and Cletus Moyer (Avery Brooks), a free black man, is helping slaves escape via an underground network. When he is captured, it puts the lives of many of those fleeing in danger. Moyer asks slaves Kunta Kinte (LeVar Burton) and the elderly Fiddler (Louis Gossett Jr.) to help, but they're reluctant because of the risks involved. After Moyer and two other men are hanged, Kinte and Fiddler must confront their consciences to do what they feel is right.
