American Experience takes a three-part look at the men and women who fought─first peaceably, and then by more forceful means─to destroy the "peculiar institution" of slavery that once plagued America. With moving profiles of activists such as Frederick Douglass, Harriet Beecher Stowe, William Lloyd Garrison, John Brown, and others, this epic-in-scope production pays tribute to the spirits and sacrifices of those who helped deliver an entire people from bondage. Narrated by Oliver Platt. 180 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital 5.1; Subtitles: English (SDH).
