Stories from the Road to Freedom
As mentioned earlier this month, the theme of Black History Month 2013 is "At the Crossroads of Freedom and Equality." To commemorate, History Channel is presenting a new 2-hour special documentary, Stories from the Road to Freedom, to give a fresh perspective to the history from Emancipation to the Civil Rights era by using first-hand accounts, rare audio recordings, never-before-seen archival footage and home movies to chronicle African American life as lived by regular people, in their own words, through over 100 years of social upheaval.
Stories from the Road to Freedom premieres Saturday, February 16 at 8 p.m. on HISTORY®.
