Film Screening at the New Brunswick Free Public Library: “Slavery by Another Name”

At 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 20,  the documentary, “Slavery by Another Name,” will be shown at in the Carl T. Valenti Community Room of the New Brunswick Free Public Library, 60 Livingston Ave. 

In the words of W. Fitzhugh Brundage, “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.”

This film addresses the complicated origins and outcomes that still color race relations today. Come and be part of the discussion. 

For more information, call (732) 745-5108, ext. 20, or visit  www.nbfpl.org.

The movie is made possible by support from The National Endowment for the Humanities and the Glider Lehrman Institute.
