4 The Glenville Democrat/ Pathfinder January 6, 1977 Watch TV show, earn GSC credits Viewers of "Roots", the 12-hour series to be seen on ABC television outlets WOWK-TK Huntington (Ch. 13) and WOAY-TV Oak Hill-Beckley (Ch. 4} from Jan. 23 to Jan. 30. can also take a three hour college credit course from Glenville State College that ties-in with the telecasts. "Roots" traces the history of a Black family from today to its forebears in The Gambia, Africa, of the 1750's. Writer Alex Haley devoted 12 years to this project of genealogical research. This exhaustive search and Haley's talent produced a rare history of a Black family from colonial days on. That the end of the book and telecasts prove to be an affirmation of life is testimony to the love, kindness, pride and aspirations passed onto each succeeding generation. The horrors of being torn away from family and an African villiage and being sold into slavery become very real to both viewer and reader. Both the book and telecasts vividly depict what is meant to be a slave, the debasement of the individual, the lack of control over one's life and the physical abuse a Black was forced to undergo. Glenville State College is offering a course, Social Sciences 399, "Roots of Black America," which for the most part, parallels the time period of "Roots. Where the book, published by Doubleday and Co., and the telecasts concentrate on the Haley family, the course relates also to the typical experiences of Afro-American Blacks. For more information on the course call the Academic Affairs Office at Glenville State College {462-7361}.
