Slavery By Another Name”
ABOUT the Book and the Documentary
The Age of Neo-Slavery

In this groundbreaking historical expose, Douglas A. Blackmon brings to light one of the most shameful chapters in American history—when a cynical new form of slavery was resurrected from the ashes of the Civil War and re-imposed on hundreds of thousands of African-Americans until the dawn of World War

Under laws enacted specifically to intimidate blacks, tens of thousands of African Americans were arbitrarily arrested, hit with outrageous fines, and charged for the costs of their own arrests. With no means to pay these ostensible “debts,” prisoners were sold as forced laborers to coal mines, lumber camps, brickyards, railroads, quarries and farm plantations. Thousands of other African Americans were simply seized by southern landowners and compelled into years of involuntary servitude. Government officials leased falsely imprisoned blacks to small-town entrepreneurs, provincial farmers, and dozens of corporations—including U.S. Steel Corp.—looking for cheap and abundant labor. Armies of “free” black men labored without compensation, were repeatedly bought and sold, and were forced through beatings and physical torture to do the bidding of white masters for decades after the official abolition of American slavery.

The neoslavery system exploited legal loopholes and federal policies which discouraged prosecution of whites for continuing to hold black workers against their wills. As it poured millions of dollars into southern government treasuries, the new slavery also became a key instrument in the terrorization of African Americans seeking full participation in the U.S. political system.

“THE ECONOMICS OF PRIVATIZATION OF AMERICA’S PRISON SYSTEM”
Saturday, January 11, 2013      LIVE    10 pm ET

We begin the 2014 Season examining the prison industrial complex, the implications of the merchandising of prisoners, the school to prison pipeline and the economics of the privatization of America’s prisons.

We invite you to join us and be part of the response to THE STATE OF EMERGENCY.

To help us frame our priorities for the 2014 year we begin by examining the American prison industrial complex. We will examine the school-to-prison strategies of prison privatization and the merchandising of prisoners in America. To inform our thinking on these issues, our guest is expert, author and scholar Dr. Byron E. Price, Ph.D., Dean of the School of Business and professor of public administration at Medgar Evers College of the City University of New York in Brooklyn, New York, and and co-editor of “Prison Privatization: The Many Facets of a Controversial Industry” and author of “Merchandising Prisoners: Who Really Pays for Prison Privatization?”
