Insightful but....
14 April 2016 | by cristoluiSee all my reviews

I Just binged it on Netflix. Very informative and illuminating, But how could you forget the singular entity that greatly impacted sports, religion, politics and race single handedly more than anyone else?! Muhammad Ali. He was just a blurb in the entire series. As in depth as the whole series was, it mostly was told from a white point of view. Black people's impact is usually relegated to racial interest only or just matters of civil rights. Granted that is a major part of the black existence in the history of the United States. But that is not the only part. We certainly did a lot more in American history than be enslaved and Overcome.
