Black History Month: Slavery By Another Name

Tuesday, February 25, 2014  
12:15 PM
DVD, 97 Minutes

This documentary challenges one of America's most cherished assumptions, the belief that slavery in the U.S. ended with Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation, by telling the harrowing story of how, in the South, a new system of involuntary servitude took its place with shocking force. Presented by PBS.
