#etvRoots: Kunta’s new life as a slave
After 10 years of being a slave, Kunta finally escapes and joins the British army. Roots, Mondays at 8:30PM.
Last week we witnessed the birth of Kunta Kinte and his journey from warrior to slave.
Tonight, after he joins the British Army he realises the only reason he and other slaves were recruited was to act as human shields during the American Revolutionary war.
Kunta then decides to leave the army only to be captured again - and this time he pays a dear price for running away!
He is sent to the farm of Dr. William Walle. It is here where Kunta finds love and marries Belle, and the two of them have a baby, Kizzy, together.
But just when we thought Kunta and his family are safe– disaster strikes yet again!
Tune in at 8:30PM to see how tonight’s episode unfolds. #etvRoots
