We partnered with The Equal Justice Initiative to create a film series for the inaugural exhibition of the newly launched Legacy Museum. “The Transatlantic Slave Trade” narrated by Don Cheadle is one of several films created for this project. It's a film about the many disparate participants who’s combined actions allowed slavery to function in America, and the elaborate false narrative put in place to gain public support for the enslavement of Black people - the results of which continue to shape American life today.
