Vesey and his conspirators planned to take control of Charleston harbor and navigate to Santo Domingo, with every Black man, woman, and child they could carry.

A House Divided premiered February 17, 1982, as a 90-minute PBS television special. I do not claim copyright over this video. The video appears to be an orphaned work meaning there is no living copyright holder (my attempts to find the copyright owner have were not successful). I am posting this in part in the hopes that the copyright owner will come forward and I can purchase rights to this work.
