To acknowledge Black History Month, Glenn Beck and David Barton kicked off a series taking a deep look at slavery and its roots during several episodes of "The Vault."
Watch the first episode here: The Vault | S2:E5 – Black History Part 1
Because of the politically incorrect nature of what they shared, Glenn admonished his viewers to do their own homework on the topics discussed.
"Don't take anything that we say on this show as gospel," Glenn said. "Go to original sources. That's why we're bringing in the documents and the things in the vault to be able to show you, here it is, the original document, the original story. Now go check it out for yourself."
