Synopsis

From The Creators Of The Best-Selling Documentary Series Up From Slavery...

A 7-Part Compelling Journey Through America's Greatest Saga!

In 1860, the nation founded upon an idea that all men are created equal and endowed by their creator with the inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness had as many as four hundred thousand slave-owners and almost four million slaves.

By denying these rights to more than twelve percent of its population, America would soon pay with the blood of a generation.

The story of African Slavery in America started with the first permanent English Colony in the 17th century... and ended with the Civil War. But those two hundred and fifty years of struggle were just the beginning. The beginning of a journey down the long Emancipation Road...
