Join us as we screen and discuss Slavery by Another Name

Slavery by Another Name: 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.

Scholar: Dr. Norton Wheeler is an associate professor at MSSU where he teaches courses in Asian history and in U.S.  history, including African American history. He is currently engaged in research projects involving Frederick Douglass and George Washington Carver.

The Created Equal films and public programs have been made possible by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, as part of its Bridging Cultures initiative, in partnership with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History.
