Following the story of the slave years in America, Africans in America: Revolution examines the struggle of the War for Independence through the eyes of those who fought for others' freedom. The culture of slavery had taken strong root by the late 18th century, and despite the promises, the thousands of African-Americans who fought the British most often found themselves back in servitude when the shooting had stopped. The beautiful documentary photography combines well with the historical interviews and recreations to tell a compelling tale of a nation deeply at odds with itself. --Rob Lightner
