Travel through time with historical figures such as Mansa Musa of 14th Century Mali, 18th Century slave rebel Jimmy Kato, anti-lynching journalist Ida B. Wells, World War ll hero Doris Miller, and television producer and creator of Soul Train, Don Cornelius as history comes to life through music, dance, and colorful stories from African-American culture.
