When I first watched this Disney+ show with my kids at home, we were immediately hooked by its time-travel adventures, hidden family secrets, and the rich depiction of intergenerational characters. But as we wrapped up two intriguing seasons, I appreciated this show for more than entertainment: it can be an educational resource for children to learn about the important history of Southern racism and Black land loss.

Twelve-year-old Griffin’s (Preston Oliver) dad buys an old hotel property called the Tremont in Sulfur Springs, La. They relocate to this Southern town and began renovating the hotel. Griffin meets a new friend Harper (Kyliegh Curran) who grew up in the area.

While exploring the property, the two teens discover the connection between Tremont and a a young girl named Savannah who went missing on the property in the 1990s. Some people speculate that the girl was kidnapped and murdered because a ghost has been haunting Tremont ever since.

When Griffin and Harper discover a time-travel portal in the basement bunker, they go in search of Savannah and find more than they ever bargained for, including a link to Harper’s own ancestors. What they discover back in time might right old wrongs and restore long-neglected injustices. 

This Emmy-nominated show is for kids ages 6-11 and their families. (Disney +)
