Video on Slave Ship Movement

I found a very interesting short video on the slave trade.  This video shows the movement of slave ships leaving Africa and traveling to the North American Continent.  Each dot represents a slave ship filled with slaves heading to an unimaginable future.  It is definitely a must watch. Click here to watch the interactive video.
