Slavery by Another Name explores the new forms of slavery after the Civil War. (VIDEO)

"Slavery by Another Name is a 90-minute documentary that challenges one of Americans’ most cherished assumptions: the belief that slavery in this country ended with the Emancipation Proclamation. The film tells how even as chattel slavery came to an end in the South in 1865, thousands of African Americans were pulled back into forced labor with shocking force and brutality."

    correct me if I'm wrong but didn't "Millions" of Slaves died on the slave ships alone???
