Slavery by Another Name

22 May 2012 9:10 AM | Dr. Margaret Hill (Administrator)
Just in time for summer school a recent PBS documentary is being released for online viewing called SLAVERY by Another Name. It examines the period between reconstruction and World War II when the rapid increase in Jim Crow laws resulted in the criminalization of huge numbers of African Americans. Incarcerated Blacks were then "leased out" to work in mines and factories in a system of forced labor as repressive worse than enslavement. Authentic footage supported by primary source dialogue and lesson material make this little known story compelling for students and teachers alike.
