This is a great program to help children get a glimpse into ancient African history. My son loves the music and movement involved with watching the show. He is a 5 year old PBS Wetakids watcher. He was much more interactive with this dvd, I think because of the hip hop style music and learning cool facts about Africa. The show is awesome, it just needs to be slowed down. More time should be spent talking about the various kingdoms and there legacies, so that the audience can remember each king and their contributions. Other than that, I am looking forward to buying the next episode.

I purchased this for a mentoring group and they absolutely loved it. It was engaging for kids ranging from 4-16. There is so much history packed into this production. It is a great instruction to a deeper desire for knowledge of self.

A REQUIREMENT for every home

This video is a MUST for every DVD shelf in all homes of people of African descent. We watch this at least once a week in our home daycare, and the children LOVE it! I am African-American History teacher and I plan on using this in my curriculum. Truly my favorite DVD ever for Black children.
