Slavery by Another Name

A new addition to our collection is Douglas A. Blackmon's Pulitzer Prize- winning Slavery by Another Name: The Re-Enslavement of Black Americans from the Civil War to World War II (Anchor Books: 2009).

The call number is 305.896 B53, and you'll find it on the New Book shelf on the Main Floor of Plough Library. New books can be checked out for two weeks.

Slavery By Another Name traces the suppression of black citizens' rights in the South, particularly in the practice of industrial slavery, in years after reconstruction through the first half of the 20th century.

For further information, you can visit the website devoted to the book and the documentary it inspired.
