Featured Documentary: “Slavery by Another Name”, 90 minutes

Slavery by Another Name tells the stories of men who were bought and sold, abused, and subject to sometimes deadly working conditions under laws that essentially served to re-enslave African Americans after 1870. Regulations against vagrancy, loitering, or walking near railroads were used to arrest, incarcerate, and sentence African American men to work as convict laborers in factories, mines, and farms. This immense system of forced, unpaid labor was a shocking reality that continued until World War II but has often gone unacknowledged.
