Slavery is, the strictest sense of the term, any system in which principles of property law are applied to people, allowing individuals to own, buy and sell other individuals, as property.

Slavery in the United States was the legal institution of human chattel enslavement, primarily of Africans and African Americans, that existed in the United States of America in the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries after it gained independence and before the end of the American Civil War. Slavery had been practiced in British North America from early colonial days, and was legal in all Thirteen Colonies at the time of the Declaration of Independence in 1776.

This mini doc focuses on slavery in America primarily. It was originally produced as the second mini doc in our series. This redux produce specifically for our 28 Days 28 Docs series has been recolored and remastered. I believe that it still has the same powerful affect of grabbing the attention bringing the message home with haste. I hope you enjoy this new Version.
