"Slavery by Another Name"
premieres on PBS Monday, February 13, 2012 at 9pm ET / 8pm CT (check local listings)

Slavery by Another Name is a 90-minute documentary that challenges one of Americans’ most cherished assumptions: the belief that slavery in this country ended with the Emancipation Proclamation. The film tells how even as chattel slavery came to an end in the South in 1865, thousands of African Americans were pulled back into forced labor with shocking force and brutality. It was a system in which men, often guilty of no crime at all, were arrested, compelled to work without pay, repeatedly bought and sold, and coerced to do the bidding of masters. Tolerated by both the North and South, forced labor lasted well into the 20th century.

For most Americans this is entirely new history. Slavery by Another Name gives voice to the largely forgotten victims and perpetrators of forced labor and features their descendants living today

I had to turn it off. I want to go hurt someone now. A 30-40% death rate, makes me wonder how we ever survived?

Don't do that.

Don't turn it off.

Don't hurt anyone.

It is part of our legacy.

Our history.

"History is a clock people use to tell their political and cultural time of the day. It is also a compass that people use to find themselves on the map of human geography. The history tells a people where they have been and what they have been. Where they are and what they are. But most importantly history tells a people where they still must go and what they still must be . The relationship of history to a people is the same as the relationship of a mother to her child."
