Slavery through the 1930’s

26 06 2008

A recently published book, Slavery by Another Name, charges – and documents – the re-institution of slavery in the south shortly after the Civil War and its continuation through the 1930’s and into the 1940’s. Douglas A. Blackmon, the author, is the Atlanta bureau chief of The Wall Street Journal, so this is not lightweight with a story of intrigue. It is, as can be seen in this article in the St. Louis Post Dispatch, a planned, organized, legalized and systematic abuse of black citizens for financial profit and racial degradation.

And it certainly brings into a different focus the slavery current in the United States and around the world.
