We will explore rise and fall of powerful and wealthy African kingdoms as well as the fateful path they took that ultimately led to the Atlantic slave trade -the trafficking of millions of human beings from West Africa to the Americas. Episode 4 : Slavery in Black and White. Slavery is nothing new in human history, but what is relatively new, however, is the phenomenon of race based slavery — a radical transformation from slavery as it had been practiced up to the point of the Atlantic Slave Trade.
Given that the British colonizers conquered many different peoples, and had a general distain for the Irish, Native Americans, Africans, and each of their conquered subjects, how then did it come to be that Africans got tagged with slave status? Episode 5 : Healing as Resistance Introduction.
The middle passage subjected enslaved Africans to an ordeal the depths of which are literally abysmal. That is, the further and deeper one looks at the Atlantic Slave Trade, the more and more suffering one finds. New evidence continues to emerge that suggests to historians that we have not yet begun to approach the depths of the African experience on the Atlantic Slave Trade.

We look at the various often conflicting elements of Black Nationalism in the struggle for Black liberation and self-determination, and specifically at Maulana Karenga and his notion of cultural nationalism within the US organization.
Is conflict inevitable between Black Nationalist organizations such as US and other civil rights organizations such as the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, which operate outside the black nationalist framework? What about the various Black Nationalist organizations themselves?
