Synopsis

Commemorating the 200th anniversary of the abolition of the Slave Trade Act, this collection of eleven stories follows the lives of slaves of every kind around the world. Join African Queen Jinga as she unites the tribes of Ndongo against the invading Portuguese. Watch John Blanke as he becomes the first black trumpeter to play for the King Henry VIII. Meet Harriet Tubman as she helps escaped slaves flee along the Underground Railroad to freedom. Moving, exciting and often funny, these true stories span centuries and the globe, feature famous historical figures such as William Wilberforce and Catherine of Aragon and remind us all of the true horrors of slavery in all its forms.
