Creating A New World: The Transatlantic Slave Trade

Creating A New World: The Transatlantic Slave Trade, a four-hour episodes series, examines how the largest forced migration in history constructed notions of race and identity, built new economies, and gave rise to global capitalism. Produced and directed by Stanley Nelson, this is the final installment of the America Revisited trilogy (Tell Them We Are Rising: The Story of Black Colleges and Universities; The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution). The series explores the demographic, economic and moral transformations wrought by the slave trade, African participation and resistance to the trade, the business of the trade and the experience of enslaved people at the heart of the trade.
