Originally broadcast as a four-part mini-series on PBS in 2004.

The 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.
