Summary Rogosin took the fight for equality to his home country with his astonishing fourth feature, BLACK ROOTS, combining haunting stories of oppression with beautiful shots of Black faces, families, and places they call home. The extraordinary cast, including Reverend Frederick Douglass Kirkpatrick, attorney and feminist activist Florynce "Flo" Kennedy, Jim Collier, Wende Smith, Larry Johnson and Reverend Gary Davis, tell stories of heartbreak and despair while the latter four's musical acts blow the roof off the rafters
