Abstract:

A four part series portraying the struggles of the African people in America, from the 1600s to the last days before the Civil War. Part 3: During the first 50 years of the new nation, freedmen and fugitive slaves pushed the country to live up to the promises made in its Constitution. But with the invention of the cotton gin, slavery expanded into America's western frontier, and a revolution in Haiti inspired slave rebellions throughout the southern United States. Part 4: As America expanded westward slavery became the most divisive issue in American life. Abolitionists struggled to bring the institution down and the nation was tested as never before. When tensions over slavery erupted into violence, Americans were forced to consider how long the country could continue as a democracy built on the profits of bondage.
