Louis Gossett at the UN to discuss slavery in film

Listen /

The consciousness of mankind has changed, according to Louis Gossett Jr., an internationally acclaimed actor and social justice advocate.

Mr. Gossett, who is perhaps best known for his performance in the 1977 American television mini-series "Roots", says the digital age has helped make difficult issues such as slavery public.

On Thursday he was at UN headquarters to attend a round-table on the representation of slavery in film.

Joshua Mmali asked Louis Gossett Jr about what has changed since he starred in Roots 30 years ago.
