While I typically vlog about technology (and HR related topics before that), this post marks my doing something different. In honor of black history month, I am doing a 3-part video series on slavery in America. I am not a historian. However, I can read what other historians and academics have detailed in their findings and present them to you in a witty and (hopefully) remarkable way.
In episode one of three…
Why were black people made slaves in America? How did it all begin? In the first part of this video series, Jim Stroud explores the legal precedent that set the stage for the enslavement of Africans in America. Tune in for a very controversial video.

If you appreciate my work, please show some support by buying me a cup of coffee. Thank you in advance.
