    I noticed this series on Netflix and was expecting a balanced, informative documentary on colonialism in Nigeria. After watching episode one, my high expectations were rudely dashed upon hearing the outrageous exaggerations from this alleged scholar. Mr. Shasore states in episode one that four million slaves from the area of present-day Nigeria were sent to the east coast of the United States. OH REALLY!!! How can this be when only four hundred thousand slaves were shipped to North America out of a total of 10.5 million transported during the entire trans-Atlantic slave trade, from 1500-1850? That is, roughly 4 percent of all African slaves went to North America. The other 96 percent went to the Caribbean, Central America, and Brazil. Frankly, I and disgusted and appalled with this type of anti-American propaganda posing as history. The author is either grossly incompetent or maliciously dishonest in his presentation. Whatever the case, he should be deeply ashamed.

    The presenter did a good job digging into available facts and presenting same. The truth is that there are many more undocumented truth of the colonial era and slave trades perpetuated against Africans. It was an educative weekend for me. This has helped me to understand the 3 different phases of the Nigerian nationhood… colonial era, self rule which plunged the country into a brotherly bloody war, then the civilian rule of present day corrupt and incompetent leaders.
    Thank you Mr Shasore.
