Excellent Video Series on Slavery

[Hat Tip to Alex Krolikowski, writing from Poland]

Below are links to a video series on slavery.   Each segment is fairly short which makes them ideal for classroom use.  I haven’t previewed every individual video, but I did see interviews with Peter Wood, James Horton and Sallie Haden.

    You are absolutely right Kelly and my guess is that within a short time these videos will be unavailable.

    I believe these are from a History Channel program. Although it is very well done, and I would sure appreciate the ability to link to these sites for class, I wonder if there is a copyright issue here?

Now that you've read the post, share your thoughts.
