'Created Equal: Slavery by Another Name'
This film features interviews with the descendants of victims and perpetrators of trumped-up crimes in the Deep South intended to create a captive force of unpaid labor. University of Wisconsin-Madison Professor Will Jones will show selected excerpts from the film and moderate a post-screening discussion.
This is the last in a series of four films the Society is hosting to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Mississippi Freedom Summer and the 1964 passage of the Civil Rights Act.
The National Endowment for the Humanities, the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History and the Bridging Cultures initiative have generously underwritten the "Created Equal: America's Civil Rights Struggle" film series.
