Description
 
The package includes:
1. Denmark Vesey: The Buried History of American Slave Rebellion and the Men Who
Led It (DVD)

Denmark Vesey, among the founders of an AME Church in Charleston, S.C. , is
noted for his plan for "the rising," a major slave revolt in 1822; by some
accounts, it would have involved thousands of slaves in the city and others on
plantations miles away.

2. Slavery by Another Name: The Re-Enslavement of Black Americans from the Civil
War to World War II by Douglas Blackmon (DVD)

A groundbreaking and disturbing account of a sordid chapter in American
history—the lease (essentially the sale) of convicts to commercial interests
between the end of the 19th century and well into the 20th. Usually, the
criminal offense was loosely defined vagrancy or even changing employers without
permission.

3. Slave Catchers, Slave Resistance and Racialized Policing (DVD)

Features stories about slave catchers and slave resistance, from the colonial
era through the Civil War and its aftermath. Slavery was built on a brutal
system of slave policing--enforced by armed community patrols, paid slave
catchers, and federal law.

4. The Counter-Revolution of 1776: Slave Resistance and the Origins of the
United States of America by Gerald Horne (DVD)

In the prelude to 1776, more and more Africans were joining the British
military, and anti-slavery sentiments were deepening throughout Britain. And as
1776 approached, London-imposed abolition throughout the colonies was a very
real and threatening possibility— To forestall it, they went to war.
