I read this novel this summer and was very taken with it; it's been made into a miniseries (3 successive nights, so nothing as drawn out as Outlander or as silly with a hiatus in the middle) by BET. I I have been stalking its premiere info, and finally, the air date has been released: Mon-Weds, February 16-18.
Here is the trailer:
and its FB page:
There is a lot of other info about it on BET's page for it as well. The cast is exceptional, and I am really hoping they did a good job staying with the book. I thought the novel was a stand-out example of great HF, the kind you can't put down and where you forget it's fiction, but the history is accurate and the details perfect.
Plus one to Deb's comments! Thanks so much for bringing this to our attention, Colleen. I have not read this book, yet, but I think it's time to move it to the top of the list. Unfortunately, I don't think our cable plan includes the BET station. I'll have to confirm and then watch for it to be released to NetFlix or AMZ.
On a related note, Sons of Liberty is a 3-part History Channel mini-series that begins tonight. As is typical of the History Channel, there will be several other opportunities to watch this.
