Watch Drunk History: Black Stories to learn a thing or two about historical Black figures. But be careful, drink responsibly.

In 1897, one of the worst acts of colonial theft would occur when the British Army took Benin City (in present day Nigeria) in a violent raid and looted the Kingdom of their Bronze artefacts. To this day 4,000 of these beautiful pieces of African art are scattered in museums around the world. Actors Tom Moutchi and Ty Logan tell us a story about a prince's mission of restitution and chance encounter leading to the return of some long sought after artefacts.
