Slavery by Another Name

The Re-enslavement of Black Americans from the Civil War to World War Two

A Pulitzer Prize-winning history of the mistreatment of black Americans. In this ´precise and eloquent work´ - as described in its Pulitzer Prize citation - Douglas A. Blackmon brings to light one of the most shameful chapters in American history - an ´Age of Neoslavery´ that thrived in the aftermath of the Civil War through the dawn of World War II. Using a vast record of original documents and personal narratives, Blackmon unearths the lost stories of slaves and their descendants who journeyed into freedom after the Emancipation Proclamation and then back into the shadow of involuntary servitude thereafter. By turns moving, sobering and shocking, this unprecedented account reveals these stories, the companies that profited the most from neoslavery, and the insidious legacy of racism that reverberates today.
Portrait
Douglas Blackmon was the Atlanta Bureau Chief of the Wall Street Journal until 2009 and then became the journal´s Senior national Correspondent.
Zitat

Blackmon eviscerates one of our schoolchildren's most basic assumptions: that slavery in America ended with the Civil War. Mr. Blackmon unearths shocking evidence that the practice persisted well into the 20th century.' New York Times 'Excellent ... deeply harrowing' -- Dominic Sandbrook, Sunday Times 'Through his diligent investigation in to forced labour, Blackmon has unearthed and examined another important strand of post-Civil War Southern white hegemony.' -- Literary Review
