The cliff notes of the cliff notes

A highlight reel of already well known stories of primarily African American history. Briefly glances over some influential and notable contributors. His Black and southern accents were unnecessary and minimizing. The last ten minutes does a super compact mention of South African recent history. The stories told from a Eurocentric view, the story begins with slavery in the U.K, to slavery in America, to South Africa and ending with Barak Obama. Excludes most of the diaspora. Would have been better to limit the story to a specific region and time period.

Fair but too much to cover in an hour and a half

Best to do away with the accents. Too bad the 80's and 90's were skipped.

Good summary however considering the Hour
