JUST ANNOUNCED at PBS ANNUAL! CREATING THE NEW WORLD: THE TRANSATLANTIC SLAVE TRADE

A Four-Part Documentary to Examine Largest Forced Migration in History, Coming to PBS as Part of Independent Lens in 2021

CREATING THE NEW WORLD is a groundbreaking series that examines how the largest forced migration in history constructed notions of race and identity; built new economies, and gave rise to global capitalism. Produced and directed by acclaimed filmmaker Stanley Nelson (MILES DAVIS: BIRTH OF THE COOL, TELL THEM WE ARE RISING: THE STORY OF BLACK COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES, THE BLACK PANTHERS: VANGUARD OF THE REVOLUTION) for national broadcast on PBS in 2021.


In four one-hour programs, each covering a defined historical period and featuring a specific voyage as its narrative spine, the series explores the demographic, economic and moral transformations wrought by the slave trade, African participation and resistance to the trade, the business of the trade and the experience of enslaved people at the heart of the trade. Leveraging the latest scholarship, forensic science and recently unearthed archival material found across four continents, the series will challenge widespread popular misconceptions about the slave trade.
