Africans in America - Part 3: Brotherly Love [VHS]
Slavery's powerful social and economic grip comes face-to-face with an abolitionist movement prepared to risk everything for change. Winner 1998 Peabody Award.
The early 19th century birthed the abolitionist movement bent on freeing the slaves, and Africans in America: Brotherly Love examines the heroic vigor with which these early leaders fought the incredibly lucrative slave industry. From large-scale political struggles to the smallest individual escapes, we see the stage set for the looming showdown over basic human rights. First-person accounts, interviews with prominent historians, and starkly beautiful documentary footage combine to weave a darkly fascinating tale of one of the most important struggles in our nation's history. --Rob Lightner

As a result I purchased about a dozen DVDs on various subject matter which I am just now getting around to viewing.
Africans in America
This DVD is a great educational documentary it gives you more insight into slavery both before and after the American Revolutionary War. There are a lot of DVD's that cover slavery around the time of the civil war. But, there is not much on early days when America was fighting for independence.
There were a couple of rebellions by salves seeking their freedom. And some slaves joined the British during the war.
Very good and detail information, I recommend buying this DVD strongly.
