Slavery by Another Name
One of American's most cherished assumptions--the belief that slavery in this country ended with the Emancipation Proclamation--is challenged in this documentary based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book by Douglas Blackmon.
Based on Blackmon's research into original documents and personal narratives, Slavery by Another Name unearths the lost stories of slaves and their descendants who journeyed into freedom after Emancipation and then back into involuntary servitude. It also tells stories of courage and redemption, and the men and women who fought against the re-emergence of human labor trafficking.
