Donald L. Miller with Pauline Maier and Virginia Scharff


Miller: The American colonies in the 1700s. The best poor man's country in the world.

Maier: Sure there's a notion that this is a country where people can do better than their parents did.

Miller: Unless you were a slave.

Scharff : "What manner of man is this American?" Well, he might be a woman, right? He might be a slave. She might be a slave.

Miller: Today on A Biography of America, the slave's middle passage. Franklin's Philadelphia. All part of America's Growth and Empire.
