This 2012 Sundance Film Festival Official Selection is narrated by Laurence Fishburn. This documentary challenges one of Americans’ most cherished assumptions: that slavery in this country ended with the Emancipation Proclamation. This film tell how even as chattel slavery came to an end in the south after the Civil War, new systems of involuntary servitude took its place with shocking force and brutality.
Dr. Gloria Cronin returns to lead a discussion regarding the themes of involuntary servitude wherein thousands of African Americans were arrested, often guilty of no crime at all, were arrested, compelled to work without pay, repeatedly bought and sold, and coerced to do the bidding of white masters.
