This documentary challenges one of Americans' most cherished assumptions: the belief that slavery in this country ended with the Emancipation Proclamation. The film tells how even as chattel slavery came to an end in the South in 1865, thousands of African Americans were pulled back into forced labor. Tolerated by both the North and South, forced labor lasted well into the 20th century. Join TPT producers Catherine Allan and Daniel Bergin for a discussion following the film.
