Using historical documentation, pictures, videos and reenactment vignettes to detail African-American history in the United States, this documentary provides a comprehensive analysis of the political and social battle for black civil rights in America.

From long forgotten or overlooked Revolutionary black patriots, through Civil War and Reconstruction heroes, the negative significance of the Pro-KKK movie "Birth of a Nation, to today's issues such as school vouchers, light is shed on the political parties and their role in fighting for or against equality in America.

Factual and to the point, this is a documentary that all Americans would greatly benefit from by viewing. Importantly, the last half hour should be required viewing to clarify the overarching philosophy of both political parties and their actions toward equality for all Americans regardless of color.

I got the book and the DVD. The narration by David on the DVD seems rushed. Maybe another narrator would have been more helpful. I volunteer with 6th thru 8th grade inner city boys. I don't think this DVD would hold their interest. However, the book should be more helpful to me in gathering the truth about the role of Blacks in our US history. I trust that David Barton is forthright in his research. I believe the book will help me to encourage the boys.

Here's another book that illustrates just how much we do not know about our nations history. These accounts are backed up with helpful links and documents that prove what the author has written. It would be great if everyone in America could read this book. I was astounded and angry when I read how much of our history has been watered down, left out and revised by the progressives teaching our kids. This is a MUST READ!

This has to be the most outstanding documentary I have ever seen. I was utterly astounded that so much American history has been so incredibly distorted, to the point where many truths have been turned upside down one hundred and eighty degrees. The real truth, it appears, is exactly the opposite of what "political correctness" would have us believe. What is even worse is that this distortion is being taught in our education system as established fact, when in reality the historical records reveal just the opposite.

The liberal left loves to try and eviscerate David Barton. He encourages anyone trying to learn about history to go back to the original documents (or as close as you can get) and he owns around 100,000 original documents. When you see the contents of this video or read the book, you have to ask yourself "Why?" it is that 95% of people (especially black people) have never heard of most of these distinguished black leaders. So, on one hand you have the progressive, liberal left that is responsible for erasing these historical figures from our education system and on the other hand David Barton with original documents in hand. Who's been telling you the truth...You be the judge. How different would young black students (really ALL students) have felt had they had these role models? How different would society be?

This video is a great introduction to many black founding fathers that I neverd heard about in school. The DVD is a good starting point to question what our government has really done in the name of equality. Even though it shows how the Democrats have been the primary oppressors of many of the blacks, the narrator makes note that the Republican are not innocent. Result of this DVD is that it is only a taste of what has gone on over the past two hundred plus years. I do want to go and learn more about some of the men that fought for equality before the Civil Rights movement.

I was expecting this video to be similar to the "African-American Founding Father's" segments David Barton had done on the Glenn Beck program on Fox, but found this went much further than just educating viewers on black heroes. It traces the political history of our country as related to African-Americans. Mr. Barton backs up all of his statement with facts and documentation from original sources.

This was a well laid out history of little-discussed American patriots. This is a must read for any history fanatic (like me). I learned none of this in high school or college. This will be on my daughter's required reading list. Well researched and well written.
