Playing:  Slavery By Another NAME, Part I  
… “A shocking reality that often went unacknowledged then and now.  A huge system of forced, unpaid labor, mostly affecting Southern black men, that lasted until World War II,  Based on the Pulitzer –Prize-winning book by Douglas Blackman tells the story of men charged with crimes like vagrancy and often guilty of nothing, who were bought and sold, abused and subject to sometimes deadly working conditions as unpaid convict labor.  Interviews with the descendants of victims….The story is important no matter how painful the reality is.”
