Both the book and the miniseries Roots opened up the conversation about race and our history in America. In this web exclusive video, OWN shared how cast members John Amos, Leslie Uggams, Ben Vereen and Louis Gossett Jr. felt about their thoughts on “why that door needs to be opened wider and where they think the country is today.” You MUST see this. Great things are happening on OWN!
