Being that history was one of the classes I cut the most back in high school, I can’t say that I often find myself planted on the couch in front of documentaries (or docudramas) about presidents (or any other historical figures, for that matter). As a person of color, I personally tend to think of the American Revolution (and pretty much all of American history) as a bunch of white people fighting for their own rights and independence while simultaneously building their entire economy on the backs of slaves. Then I happened to watch HISTORY’s three-part docudrama Washington, and you know what? I was right! Also, it was time very well spent.
