For thousands of years, slavery went unchallenged in principle. Then in a single century, slavery was abolished and more than seven million slaves were freed. Greatest Emancipations tells this amazing story, focusing on Haiti, the British Caribbean, the US, Cuba and Brazil, which accounted for the vast majority of slaves in the west.
