520    A four part series portraying the struggles of the African
       people in America, from their arrival in the 1600s to the 
       last days before the Civil War. The first episode, 
       Terrible transformation, examines the origins of one of 
       the largest forced human migrations in recorded history. 
       After the arrival of the first Africans in Virginia in 
       1619, the British colonies laid the groundwork for a 
       system of racial slavery which generated profits that 
       ensured the colonies' growth and survival. In the second 
       episode, Revolution, while the American colonies challenge
       Britain for independence, American slavery is challenged 
       from within as men and women fight to define what America 
       will be. When the War of Independence is won, black people,
       both enslaved and free, seize on the language of freedom 
       even while the new nation's Constitution codifies slavery 
       and oppression as a national way of life.  In the third 
       episode, Brotherly love, during the first 50 years of the 
       new nation, freedmen and fugitive slaves in Philadelphia 
       push the country to live up to the promises made in its 
       Constitution. But with the invention of the cotton gin, 
       slavery expands into America's western frontier, and a 
       revolution in Haiti inspires slave rebellions throughout 
       the souther United States. In the fourth and final episode,
       as the nation expands westward slavery becomes the most 
       divisive issue in American life. Abolitionists struggle to
       bring the institution down and the nation is tested as 
       never before. When tensions over slavery erupt into 
       violence, Americans are forced to consider how long the 
       country can continue as a democracy built on the profits 
       of bondage.
