Overall program 109 focuses on the seizure and transport of African men, women, and children to the United States and Atlantic coast colonies. The physical transport, called "Middle Passage," is illustrated via the use of a filmstrip on the topic prepared by the Afro Audiovisual Company of Boston. Additional segments include the "Historical Minute" with Georgia State Representative Julian Bond, "Information" on why the slave trade took place, a performance by mime Fred Johnson (Halim Adbur Rashid), a filmed segment with Byron Rushing, Director of the Museum of Afro-American History in Boston, on the aims of the museum and the difficulties in documenting African American history, segment interludes with Wolf (of the musical group Mandrill), Coffee Cave and Tasha Jones (then cast member of The Wiz); "Book Beat," and commentary by Sarah-Ann Shaw on Third World struggles for independence. Produced by Marita Rivero. Directed by Conrad White.
