Still image from Freedom Over Me: Eleven Slaves, Their Lives and Dreams Brought to Life by Ashley Bryan

Inspired by the actual will of a plantation owner that listed the worth of each and every one of his "workers," this video uses original documents from slave auctions and plantation estates to create a moving and powerful portrait of slavery. Poetry and illustrations contrast the monetary value of a slave with the priceless value of a person's life experiences. Based on the children's book by Ashley Bryan.
