"Slavery by Another Name" will include a viewing of the PBS documentary which takes a look at various instances where slavery has continued to exist in America even in the many years following its supposed abolition. Dr. Kavish will facilitate a discussion of race in America and the lasting consequences of slavery.

About the film:

This 90-minute PBS documentary "Slavery by Another Name" challenges one of America's most cherished assumptions - the belief that slavery in this country ended with the Emancipation Proclamation. The film tells the story of how even as chattel slavery came to an end in 1865, thousands of African Americans were pulled back into forced labor with shocking force and brutality.
