Phillip Martin begins a series of NPR reports on the history of the slave trade. The reports are in collaboration with a PBS documentary titled "Africans in America—America's Journey through America." The documentary debuts tonight. A CD ROM called "The Atlantic Slave Trade" will be released next month. It documents more than 27,000 slave ship voyages from 1527 through 1867.
