Part 1 of Africans in America recounts history's largest forced migration and its economic benefits. After settling North American colonies, England joins Spain, Portugal, and the Netherlands in the slave trade, abducting millions of Africans as laborers. Nearly a quarter of them die during the crossing. In America, Europeans rely on African labor to transform a continent, but come to fear the growing sub-population, sparking brutality.

  • "Examine the largest forced migrations in world history and how this mass movement of people was instrumental in the creation of America. Millions of Africans are abducted from their homelands to labor in the colonies. Almost 1/4 of them die in crossing the Atlantic. In the American colonies, African skills and labor transform vast lands into agricultural profits. But slavery's inhumane codes and punishments foment African resistance and escape, bringing more brutality from slave holders."
