Justified Journey follows a Wisconsin man as he discovers his heritage within America’s gruesome slave history. Alex Gee tells his story, the story of many African Americans, that began forty years ago as a boy watching the TV series, “Roots”. Decades later, he resumes his journey in earnest and it takes him to the painful origins of his family. But from that experience he makes the poignant discovery that alters his perspective on the past and the future. As he reflects on his story, Gee reveals how it embodies the wider struggle for black equality and equity in America and what must be done to create real change.
