Film: "Slavery by Another Name"
Facilitated by Wayne Glasker, Associate Professor of History, Rutgers-Camden
About the Film:
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 on the 2008 Pulitzer Prize-winning book of the same title by Douglas Blackmon.
About this program:
Through the 2013 Face to Face program initiative, “Created Equal: New Jersey,” the New Jersey Council for the Humanities will partner with 12 New Jersey communities to explore how the evolving meaning of equality, freedom and democracy in the United States has shaped local experiences.
