#documentarydialogue: Slavery By Another Name



Based on journalist Douglas A. Blackmon’s book, Slavery By Another Name (#sbanPBS) is a captivating documentary that addresses slavery did not end with the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863. The 13th Amendment states, “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, EXCEPT as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.” This exception to the amendment is critical in understanding how slavery has and will continue to exist in America, mainly for African Americans. This 90 minute documentary takes an explorative look into this loophole in the 13th Amendment and how it has affected African Americans spanning over 8 decades, from 1865 until 1945.
