When the novel The Underground Railroad was published in 2016, it caught the world's attention for its stark portrayal of slavery in America.
The story reimagines the metaphorical underground railroad as an actual underground railroad, with train tracks and stations. Readers follow the journey of Cora, a young woman escaping slavery in Georgia.
Now, the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel has been adapted into a limited TV series of the same name, available to stream on Amazon Prime.
We speak with Barry Jenkins, the director of the show, and Colson Whitehead, the book's author.
