‘Slavery by Another Name’ documentary to air on PBS in February 2012

I am so excited to see that Pulitzer prize winning author Douglas A. Blackmon’s Slavery by Another Name has been made into 90 minute documentary. It is scheduled to air in February on PBS. Sam Pollard, who was a longtime editor on Spike Lee’s films, directed the project, which takes a hard look at the many ways involuntary servitude continued for African Americans long after the abolition of slavery. (My 4-part interview series with Doug Blackmon begins here.)
