Audio Journeys explore The Life of African Americans in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia. The first capital of the colonies, Colonial Williamsburg tells the story in the years preceding and during the American Revolution. Four hundred years of history across the Commonwealth of Virginia series.
I think it important for the public to understand that 18th century African Americans were not all enslaved and even those who were exercised agency. I thought this was an important aspect of the piece. While I appreciated the excerpt from Equiano's book, I felt that the piece could have been a little more in depth with respect to the life of Equiano and his political influence.
