Slavery by Another Name | Preview | PBS

Ayanna Nahmias:

We have chosen to reblog this post because the blog on which this was originally featured, DJ Academe, provides a wealth of knowledge and challenges our perspectives through the use of video.

There were so many good posts that it was hard to choose one to reblog; however, we eventually chose to this post because American slaves originated from Africa which is a dominant focus of The Nahmias Cipher Report.

DJ Academe is a blog well worth perusing. It is not just about racism in America or elsewhere, it is about Human Rights. They challenge our notions of gender, sexual orientation, religion, etc. and are definitely succeeding in ‘Teaching Sociology Through Video.’

SLAVERY BY ANOTHER NAME is a 90 minute documentary that challenges one of America’s most cherished assumptions: the belief that slavery in this country ended with Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation of 1863. Premiering February 13 on PBS.

      Saw this powerful documentary, my husband blogged about it, and it’s essential viewing in my opinion .. plus, it leads directly to present-day questions about our incarceration rates, and what they are really meant to do … i.e. lock away & disenfranchise black men. The shameful period in America goes on and on…

        Betty, you are so right! This has been a long running play full of bad actors and a great deal of denial. You are absolutely correct that this has been a systematic and well-calculated assault on black men in this country. The privatization of the prison system has turned this human rights abuse into big business without the any pretense of rehabilitation. Please reply back with a link to your husband’s blog and his post. I would love to watch the movie and I am sure other readers would as well.
