A special showing and discussion of "Slavery By Another Name," presented s part of the NEH Created Equal Film Series. Join us for the screening of documentaries that present compelling stories detailing often overlooked periods in African American History. After each screening, stay for an interactive talkback about the issues, themes and legacies presented in each. Free to attend.

Slavery by Another Name: Even as slavery ended in the South, after the Civil War new forms of forced labor kept thousands of African Americans in bondage until the onset of World War II. Based off the book by Douglas Blackmon, this award-winning PBS documentary explores the hidden history of peonage, chain gangs and prison labor camps that existed throughout the region trapping thousands in a system of fear, extortion and indifference.
