Read About the History  Legacy of Slavery in America

Adult Non-Fiction

Adult Fiction



Slavery by Another Name is the title of both a book and a documentary film that challenge  one of Americas most cherished assumptions: the belief that slavery in this country ended with the Emancipation Proclamation.  

They reveal how even as chattel slavery came to an end in the South in 1865, thousands of African Americans and some poor whites 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 1940’s.
