  • The Fabric of African Society: Looks back on the history of weaving in Africa and its ties to tribal customs.
  • Sunken City: Takes students on an underwater expedition to the submerged city of ancient Alexandria.
  • Africa's Slave Trade: Documents thousands of years when African rulers traded in slavery.
  • Apartheid's Legacy: Analyzes how South Africa's oppressive policy of apartheid affected all its citizens, even after it ended.
