Slavery by Another Name

Premiered February 2012

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 1865, thousands of African Americans were pulled back into forced labor with shocking force and brutality.

Major funding for SLAVERY BY ANOTHER NAME provided by National Endowment for the Humanities, W.K. Kellogg Foundation, The Coca-Cola Company and CPB/PBS Diversity & Innovation Fund. Additional funding by Georgia-Pacific, KeyBank Foundation and Merck.
