Slavery By Another Name

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Slavery By Another Name

1 hour 58 min

SLAVERY BY ANOTHER NAME challenges one of America's most cherished assumptions: the belief that slavery in this country ended with Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation of 1863. This documentary tells a harrowing story of how in the South, even as chattel slavery came to an end, new forms of involuntary servitude, including convict leasing, debt slavery and peonage, took its place with shocking force -- brutalizing and ultimately circumscribing the lives of hundreds of thousands of African Americans well into the 20th century. It was a system in which men, often guilty of no crime at all, were arrested, compelled to work without pay, repeatedly bought and sold and coerced to do the bidding of masters. The program spans eight decades, from 1865 to 1945, revealing the interlocking forces in both the South and the North that enabled this "neoslavery" to begin and persist. Using archival photographs and dramatic re-enactments, filmed on location in Alabama and Georgia, it tells the forgotten stories of both victims and perpetrators of neoslavery and includes interviews with their descendants living today. The program also features interviews with Douglas Blackmon, author of the Pulitzer Prize- winning book "Slavery by Another Name" and with leading scholars of this period.
Shocking.

If it comes around again I'm going to record it.

Advantage of DVD recording over ROKU: can fast forward over pledge breaks on recorded DVD.

Also do that when recording film noir on non-PBS stations day in day out. Got pretty good at ff over commercials for those. Nice!

So there.

No ROKU needed!

Well, we know you enjoy the clutter of all those DVDs lying around probably uncategorized and unorganized.

Also the environmentally friendly benefit of creating more waste for the landfill where they'll eventually wind up.

Win win. 🙄

Somebody must have covered it, but remind me again why DVD's are better than DVR? The added advantage of having something to tease the cats with?

They're very handy.
If you ever get stranded in the desert or lost at sea you can use them as a reflector to signal SOS.

(Actually true, I keep an old one in my scuba BC for a boat signaling emergency. )

Turns out you can do a lot of things with DVDs you can't do with DVR. #3 looks right down Ulysses' alley.

Interesting that most are garden accessories, garden bird deterrents and/or wind chimes.

I thought the last one was the most practical as a reflector for fence posts.

Just trying to be helpful to Ulysses, who has a large garden and various critters. I thought a couple hundred DVD's hung all around in an tasteful manner might be considered functional art.
