During our year-long commemoration of the Bicentennial of Frederick Douglass’s birth, we look at slavery in America, throughout its history. This film will be followed by a panel discussion led by Dr. Viviane Saleh-Hanna, Chairperson, Department of Crime & Justice Studies at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and Park Ranger Rufai Shardow.

Slavery by Another Name “resets” our national clock with a singular astonishing fact: Slavery in America didn’t end 150 years ago, with Abraham Lincoln’s 1863 Emancipation Proclamation. Based on Douglas A. Blackmon’s Pulitzer Prize-winning book, the film illuminates how in the years following the Civil War, insidious new forms of forced labor emerged in the American South, persisting until the onset of World War II.
