Our Slavery did not begin with slave ships – Music Video

This is a fantastic video. Great images. Great song. I guess the music is a remix of Nas’ “If I Ruled The World.” The title of the documentary segment is “It Started With Slave Ships.” I think someone added the music and retitled the piece on YouTube as “Our Slavery did not begin with slave ships.” There is also […]
