SLAVERY AND THE MAKING OF AMERICA This landmark four-part series documents the history of American slavery from its beginnings in the British colonies to its end in the Southern states, and through the years of post-Civil War Reconstruction. The series examines the integral role slavery played in shaping the new country's development, challenging the long held notion that it was exclusively a Southern enterprise. Through the remarkable stories of individual slaves, Slavery and the Making of America offers fresh perspectives on the slave experience and testifies to the active role that Africans and African Americans took in surviving their bondage and shaping their own lives.
