Abstract:

A four part series portraying the struggles of the African people in America, from their arrival in the 1600s to the last days before the Civil War. In this final episode, as the nation expands westward slavery becomes the most divisive issue in American life. Abolitionists struggle to bring the institution down and the nation is tested as never before. When tensions over slavery erupt into violence, Americans are forced to consider how long the country can continue as a democracy built on the profits of bondage.
