Episode Details:

For generations, men and women have lived and died for it. Today, it remains America's highest calling, with our troops proudly defending it. Now, examine the meaning of freedom with this acclaimed series, based on the award-winning books by master storyteller Joy Hakim.
Freedom: A History of US brings you face-to-face with our nation's commitment to liberty and the idea of freedom. You'll examine the Jeffersonian vision of including all in the American dream and the contradictions that have belied the vision--the subjugation of women, the abuse of power, the threat to civil liberties. The series climaxes with a fresh look at the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s and ends with the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001--a spur to national renaissance.
Through archival film, rare photographs, and vivid first-person accounts presented by Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep, and other leading actors, Freedom: A History of US tells the inspiring story of human liberties aspired to and won.

The series opens with Jefferson's vision of an all-inclusive American dream, before examining contradictions: subjugation of women, abuse of labor, threats to civil liberties.
