Created Equal Film

Slavery by Another Name


North Shore Library

Film Screening Tuesday, October 22nd 6 p.m.

Film Discussion Saturday October 26th 1 p.m.

For African Americans after the Civil War, the abolition of slavery in 1865 was a

landmark in human history. But blacks came to recognize that while slavery had been abolished, their newly secured freedom was at risk despite the Reconstruction-era constitutional amendments. New forms of coerced labor proliferated in the post-Civil War South, as trumped-up criminal charges were used as a pretext for the virtual re-enslavement of thousands of able-bodied southern black men and women. The film screening is Tuesday October, 22nd at 6 p.m. Then come back for an interesting and lively discussion of the film led by Robert S. Smith, Associate Professor of History UW-Milwaukee Saturday October 26th at 1 pm.


All films and discussions are free and open to the public
