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 second episode, while the American colonies challenge Britain for independence, American slavery is challenged from within as men and women fight to define what America will be. When the War of Independence is won, black people, both enslaved and free, seize on the language of freedom even while the new nation's Constitution codifies slavery and oppression as a national way of life.
