Description

Part of the After Emancipation 3-Part Film Series

This documentary film challenges one of Americans' most cherished assumptions: that slavery in this country ended with the Emancipation Proclamation. Even as chattel slavery came to an end in the South after the Civil War, new systems of involuntary servitude took its place for more than 80 years. Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book by Douglas A. Blackmon, the program's largely forgotten victims and perpetrators are given a voice through interviews with their living descendants. Historians provide context and perspective to this time. Produced and directed by Sam Pollard; narrated by Laurence Fishburne, 2012, TPT National Productions, 90 minutes, documentary-not rated.

No registration is required. Seating is first-come, first-seated. Groups are welcome.
