In August of 1619, a ship carrying more than 20 enslaved Africans arrived in the English colony of Virginia. America was not yet America, but this was the moment it began. No aspect of the country that would be formed here has been untouched by the 250 years of slavery that followed. On the 400th anniversary of this fateful moment, it is time to tell the story.

This podcast i replay over and over! The stories and history are so unforgettable. The segments are just enough to stay in your brain without being overwhelming. I am eagerly awating the next one!
Just a few episodes in, but this is on its way to being one of the best (important, impactful, well produced) podcasts I've ever had the pleasure of listening to.
Any show that can make me riveted by history is exceptional. This is U.S. history from the point of African Americans, narrated by an African American, using voices of African Americans as primary sources. Stellar sound-quality and amazing storytelling. Why hasn't there been a podcast like this before?
