Details

In the Gambia, West Africa in 1750, Kunta Kinte is born to Muslim Mandinka warrior Omoro Kinte and his wife Binta . When their son reaches the age of 15, he and a group of other adolescent males take part in a tribal "coming of manhood" ceremony, after which they officially become Mandinka warriors. When given a task to find a goose Kunta spots a white man, carrying a firearm. Later, trying to find wood outside his village to make a drum for his brother, Kunta is captured by contentious tribe members and sold to slave traders of the infamous Atlantic Slave Trade and put on a slave ship commanded by Captain Davies for a three-month journey to Colonial America. During the course of their forced journey, a group of African rebels try, but fail to take over the ship
