“Origins”

Beginning with Africa’s ancient history as the cradle of mankind, this documentary series with Henry Louis Gates, Jr. brings to life the epic stories of both little-known and celebrated African kingdoms and cultures. Gates presents — for the first time for a popular audience — a new vision not only of Africa’s pivotal place in world history, but also the world’s relation to Africa. Three-part series continues Wednesday and Thursday nights at 9 pm. [Schedule Note: This is a change from what we printed in the March FanFare program guide. Part 2 moved from Tuesday to Wednesday night due to live State of the Union Speech coverage.]
