Unraveling the British Empire’s Lasting Influence

EMPIRE: THE WORLD’S FIRST SUPERPOWER presents a new and radically surprising picture of British imperialism and its lasting influence on the present-day United States. Throughout the four-part series, viewers will learn how civilizations were shaped, built and rebuilt in the United Kingdom and the Americas — from class structures to diet and everything in between.

What does the past teach us about the world we live in today, and what really drives global politics? How did the British abolition of slavery impact the American South?
