      This four-part documentary series chronicles the history of American slavery from when it started in the British colonies to its eventual end in the Southern states and years after the post-Civil War Reconstruction. Slavery and the Making of America portrays the act of slavery as a significant part of developing a nation. This theory questions the old-age notion that this enslavement was exclusively a Southern enterprise. It also focuses on the fascinating stories of individual slaves offering a different view on their experience.The first episode, The Downward Spiral takes viewers back to the 1620s and introduces us to 11 men of African descent and mixed ethnicity in New Amsterdam. We watch as these men laboured the foundations of what would eventually become New York. Liberty in the Air, the second episode goes forward and viewers witness how slavery continues to support economic developed from the 1740s to the 1830s.

      The third episode, Seeds of Destruction takes us to 1777 and highlights how one by one the Northern states introduce laws to phase out slavery. Ironically slavery in the Southern United States embarks on its greatest expansion. The Challenge of Freedom, the fourth and final episode in this series shed light on the Civil War and Reconstruction through Robert Smalls experience as a slave in South California.

      I learned more about my history in this 4 part documenarty then I have learned in my 12 year education from 1964-1977. I never even heard of some of these people of my culture. You know hurts the most is , history wwas my favorite subject in school and I believed the lie I was taught. Thank you for the truth.

    • Thank you for this very informative, interesting, and well-presented documentary series. It has provided a perfect supplement to my 7th and 9th grade homeschooling lessons on slavery, abolitionists, and the Civil War eras.
      It is very generous of your to share it in this way.
      I appreciate your efforts to supply truthful and moving accounts of the history of slavery in America.

      This was the best doc. I’ve seen on the subject. I can see why the true story of America’s association with slavery is so down-played. And to hear the horns blow for the world’s best hope of freedom rings a bit off key! yeah..show us how it’s done.

      I wholeheartedly appreciate this documentary. It brings forth the truth of The Great Human Suffering which occurred in America. The undeserved suffering of millions. I was tearful throughout most of the documentary. I’ve seen some of that same Great Arrogance towards blacks even today.
      We will never understand the racism against us unless we study the truth about what happened to our ancestors. It was an African holocaust, our holocaust and we should never forget! Our freedoms stand to be taken away again unless we are watchful and discerning.
      There’s still a move to devalue our very existence as human beings. Keep the past present in mind!
