Video: Slavery by Another Name

PBS has put an excellent free video online, called “Slavery by Another Name.” It documents the 80-year period from the end of the Civil War (1865) to the end of World War II (1945) during which blacks in the South were forced to work for subsistence wages or no wages — and had no recourse through the courts or even the media.
It’s another shameful period in our history that few of us, black or white, know much about because it is not taught in our schools.
