Nearly four hundred years ago, the first shipment of African slaves arrived in
the American colonies. This ship, filled with human cargo, would unknowingly
change this place forever. In time, the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade would bring
to this nation assassinations, riots, lynching, hate groups and even civil war.
After the abolition of slavery, the struggle for African-American equality was
long and bloody. It was a period punctuated by some of the most vicious and
destructive acts in human history. The struggle for equal rights often brought
out the worst in people, but it also exposed many great heroes. Throughout it's
darkest days, America's ability to survive it's internal conflicts has shown it's
strength, but only when America can fully accept all of it's people equally, will it
prove it's greatness.
