In this documentary, historian Sam Pollard argues that domestic slavery continued for years in a covert, thinly-veiled form for decades after the said legal shift; he therefore suggests that it constitutes a grave moral breach within American society. The program undertakes a historical approach; it begins during the period of Reconstruction, with the U.S. on the brink of economic failure. This was a period when African Americans first had the option of social and political ascendancy, and - tragically - Southern States resorted to slimy, underhanded tactics to preserve the status quo - such as debtors' peonage, convicts leased to private businesses, and forced convict labor in operations run by the state. In the program, Pollard leads the audience on a chronological tour of this disturbing history, unveiling one shocking detail after another. Nathan Southern, RoviRead Less
