The Book of Negroes on BET at 8:00pm ET. Original miniseries premiere. Part 1 of 6. This mini-series follows the fictional slave Aminata as she is brought to the US from Africa and sold into slavery, and the intersection of her life and the Revolutionary War. The title comes from an actual document naming slaves who were loyal to the crown during the Revolutionary War, and were granted safe passage to Nova Scotia and freedom by the British for their services. There were approximately 3,000 names on the list, and the document itself is currently in the National Archives. The miniseries is based on a book of the same name by Lawrence Hill, and premiered in Canada last month.
