The film Slavery By Another Name explores a reality that often went unacknowledged: a huge system of forced, unpaid labor, mostly affecting Southern black men, that lasted from the 1800s until World War II. Panelists will discuss the film and what it suggests about life in America today. Dr. Spencer Crew, Robinson Professor of American, African American, and Public History at George Mason University, will lead the discussion.
*The film Slavery By Another Name will be screened at 12 p.m. on February 2nd and 4th in the Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery.
This event is sponsored by the Africana Studies Department, the Albin O. Kuhn Library and Gallery, the Dresher Center for the Humanities, and the National Endowment for the Humanities, Created Equal: America’s Civil Rights Struggle. Click here for more information.
