'The Book Of Negroes' On CBC: Miniseries Not To Be Missed
Canadians are still in denial, myself included. I understand there are important stories to tell, but personally I don't really fancy watching a movie that may earn critical acclaim but is brutally accurate and packed with vivid, stomach-churning imagery of pain, cruelty and horrific violence. I'm not sure if I should be ashamed for not wanting to watch parts of barbaric history and trading in human flesh; all I do know is the subject matter makes me angry-hot, to the point where all I see is red and steam is on the verge of coming out of my ears. And from an entertainment point of view, that's not how I want to feel when watching something.
Thankfully, "The Book Of Negroes" is anything but. (It premieres Wednesday, Jan. 7 at 9 p.m. ET/9:30 p.m. NT on CBC.)
