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.
