This is a good resource. Henry takes a survey of Africa that is good for the average viewer. He depicts a more honest look at a section of chattle slavery. More needs to be offered there to shatter myths most hold on that period. There is much to know but the media and scope is not an attempt comparable to Will Durant who spent his entire life writing a history series. Maybe this can inspire others to make further scholarship.

I think I don't like it when camera constantly jumps from one expert to the other, it is hard even to tell whose voice you hear.
A lot of well-known banalities, at least to my taste. This documentary might be educational and interesting only for someone who not only never studied world history but also never watched or read anything about African civilizations.
On the good side - some scenes are really beautiful.
