Slavery By Another Name: THE DIALOGUE

 Registration is closed for this event
The 2012 National Black Arts Festival opens with this special event with proceeds benefitting NBAF’s programs. THE DIALOGUE takes a deep dive into the subject matter of Douglas A. Blackmon’s Pulitzer-Prize-winning book Slavery by Another Name: The Re-Enslavement of Black Americans from the Civil War to World War II. Slavery by Another Name is a historical expose that presents evidence that slavery in the United States did not end with the Civil War, but continued with the forced labor of imprisoned African American men and women through the convict lease system used by southern states, local governments, white farmers, and corporations. Guests will view Robert Morris’ exhibition inspired by Blackmon’s book, Slavery by Another Name: Paintings and Assemblages. The documentary by filmmaker Sam Pollard will be showing throughout the gallery. THE DIALOGUE will feature journalist and award-winning author Douglas A. Blackmon, Robert Claiborne Morris the Georgia visual artist whose work was inspired by the book and Sam Pollard Producer/Director of the PBS Documentary.
