The Roosevelts: An Intimate History

The Roosevelts

Have you been watching the latest Ken Burns production The Roosevelts? I am absolutely enthralled.

It’s a seven-part, 14 hour film that has been on PBS for two hours every night since last Sunday night. Tonight is the last episode, but it’s also available to watch online. Probably for a limited period of time.

If you haven’t been watching, I really recommend it. This film pulls you back into the past in such a big and complete way that I haven’t felt in a very long time. Maybe since Roots.

What’s interesting is that the more I understand and learn about the past, the more I feel like current events are so similar. That cliche the more things change the more they stay the same is so true!

I’m looking forward to the last episode of The Roosevelts tonight. Will you be watching?
