440 Negroes

440 Negroes is a documentary that tells the story of the contemporary impacts from the largest auction of enslaved people in U.S History. This auction was the catalyst for a series of events in US history that shaped the current social norms of income inequality and injustice within the African American community.

The documentary focuses around "the Weeping Time" slave auction in Savannah Georgia with interviews of specialists that describe the sanitized historical facts while relating those facts to present-day America.
