Slavery By Another Name
I've been meaning to wath this interview on Bill Moyers show with Douglas Blackmon, author of "Slavery by Another Name." Its an overall insightful and eye-opening interview. I definitely want to read this book now. The book uncovers how many places in the South continued to enslave black people after Reconstruction using petty laws that were overwhelmingly enforced on blacks to return them to forms of forced labor. Hard stuff.
