The War Between the States finally brought an end to centuries of slavery in America. Africans in America: Judgment Day eloquently tells the story of the years leading up to this terrible war, detailing how the rising tide of abolitionism met the deeply entrenched slave economy, which made armed struggle inevitable. The genius of the program lies in its use of individual stories to explain nationwide events; the re-creations, interviews, and lush photography create a real sense of the tense antebellum atmosphere leading to the Emancipation Proclamation. This is an essential piece of American history, told from a long-neglected perspective. --Rob Lightner
