rob us of being black, son, they robbed us of being human.”
This is the story of one family. A family whose history saw
its first ancestor captured, shackled, and brought to this country from Africa.

and love. And of the piece of the land that holds them together throughout it
Follow a family over nearly 250 years of their history, from
