    1 thought on “Slavery By Another Name: The Re-Enslavement of Black Americans from the Civil War to World War II”

    1. This book was fascinating and eye-opening. I grew up in the south, but I admit to being shamefully ignorant of post-emancipation slavery. In school we were taught that slavery existed, and it was awful-terrible-bad, and that Lincoln freed the slaves, and then nothing. Nothing until the Civil Rights movement of the 60s. It's like the 100 or so years in between just didn't even exist to my history teachers. It was all just "Nothin' to see here nothing to see here at all. Keep moving."Shameful. I k [...]

    2. What is slavery? Is it the absence of any right to self-determination? Is it being bought and sold in the same way as livestock? Does bonded labour fall into its definition? Is it being free to work for a pittance and obey the Man's rules and regulations, which might be made up on the spot if your face doesn't fit and then suffer the consequences from a beating, to imprisonment, even death? I don't know how America defined slavery but it was obviously in a fake and euphemistic way if the Governm [...]

    3. I sort of knew lots of this. I did not know how close I was to it. If you live your life for the sole purpose of acquiring wealth, there is no limit to the evil that you can and will do. The amazing thing is that you will never admit that evil to yourself. It seems right. So very right.This book helps to explain a lot of the dysfunction in the Black community. Not all of it, of course, but living under slavery and having that followed by 75 years of government-ignored terrorism changes a culture [...]

    4. Slavery by Another Name lays out the Tea Party’s entire platform!Slavery by Another Name follows the life of Green Cottenham who was arrested on March 30, 1908 by the sheriff of Selby County, Alabama, and charged with “vagrancy” and in walking in his footsteps author Blackmon shared what he’d learned about the politics of the day and how those politics and slavery were synonymous then as they are today.Slavery: that slow Poison, which is daily contaminating the Minds & Morals of our [...]

    5. First, let me acknowledge how difficult this book was for me to read. Not due to the writing but the topic and detail. It was emotionally wrenching and Blackmon painstakingly filled each page with names and scenarios of the most cruelest brutalities…because he delved so deep into the research I found myself wanting to honor the men and women and children he had given name to by absorbing and reflecting as much as I could handle until I completed the book.Have you ever experienced an understand [...]

    6. I read this for a Race and Diversity class in college and while the subject matter was fascinating and horrifying, the writing was lacking. The author focuses on the statement that every child learns in elementary school: Slavery ended after the Civil War - and proves how false that statement is. It was enlightening and terrible at the same time. I had no idea how ignorant I was about that section of America's history. African-Americans were basically re-enslaved for 75 years through the use of [...]

    7. I expected this book to rehash the well-known civil rights abuses that took place between the abolition of slavery and the Civil Rights Movements a hundred years later, but in fact it did so much more than that: it taught me things about US history and slave history in the US which I had never known. The book meticulously documents how slavery continued "underground" after emancipation on a vast, all-encompassing scale through the various machinations of the US legal and corporate system, protec [...]

    8. This book is shocking until one remembers that the history studied in school, and in the popular books, is that which was written by the winners. In the case where it was not a declared war, but rather an internal conflict, the ruling class's perspective controls. This is why there has been so little candidly written about the decimation of the Irish in the potato fame due to the hard-heartedness of the English. This book now reveals the shame in the United States in race relations following the [...]

    9. In his epilogue, Blackmon asserts that "In every aspect and among almost every demographic, how American society digested and processed the long, dark chapter between the end of the Civil War and the beginning of the civil rights movement has been delusion." This popular history -- frequently revelatory and unrelentingly horrifying -- aims to correct such delusion. As the title makes plain, Blackmon describes the institutions that emerged to establish and maintain the forced labor of African Ame [...]

    10. Everyone should read this book -- the fact that almost no one knows about one of the most horrific chapters in our nation's recent history is shocking. In fact, "shocking" describes most of this book; like "King Leopold's Ghost," its both depressingly real yet so horrific as to defy belief. In the epilogue, Blackmon says we need to rename the "Jim Crow Era" the "Era of Neoslavery" in order to reflect the reality of what was actually taking place. Did you know that, until the 1950s, it was NOT a [...]

    11. #ColinKaepernick #HistoryOfJusticeInAmerica #BLMThis author provided an exceptional detailed description of how slavery continued long after the Civil War and the resulting emancipation proclamation. Once slaves were "free," Southerners came up with creative and extremely effective ways to keep black men working for free. While this book is a must read on the subject, I would urge anyone interested to read David Oshinsky's Worse Than Slavery, an even better book about how freed black men were re [...]

    12. I will admit that I was a bit hesitant at first with this book. It seems there has been quite a few books come to my desk that are a bit brutal about the South in particular and the US in general. I was half expecting this to be another of the countless books that wish to heap blame on the south and want to further stir racial resentments for the author’s economic gain. I am so pleased to say that I did not find that to be the case with this book. Rather, I found a very interesting story that [...]

    13. I am conflicted with rage and sorrow after finally finishing Douglas A. Blackmon's "Slavery by Another Name: The Re-Enslavement of Black Americans from the Civil War to World War II."The complicity of numerous Corporations (U.S. Steel, etc.) and our United States government in all its racist glory, that allowed the dirty South to continue its practice of absolute inhuman subjugation, mass murders, and mortal terror of African Americans after our so-called emancipation, must be addressed somehow, [...]

    14. This Pulitzer winner is a good one. I knew nothing about the prisoner enslavement system post-Civil War. Eye-opening. This is a must read for anyone interested in civil rights.

    15. This book was a little too long, a bit slow in spots, occasionally repetitive, and there were even a couple of typos -- and I'm still giving it five stars. It was that amazing.

    16. 1865, the South surrenders - 1945, slavery ends. And if you doubt that then read this book. And if you still doubt itwell, that's why we have a Trump as "president". Slavery by Another Name, Douglas A. Blackmon.1865, The south was reduced. Southern Alabama would take forty years to match its agricultural output of 1860. Things learned: post Civil War violence was mostly white on white. Given the background of devastated state governments, there was a great deal of such violence. Confederate and [...]

    17. i can't say enough about how important this book is. it totally blew my mind and significantly rearranged my understanding of american history in the first half of the 20th century. my knowledge of the end of slavery in this country was shockingly incomplete. brilliantly written and researched, this is essential reading.

    18. Slavery has not yet ended in the USA, but most people aren't even aware that it didn't end after the Civil War. Today the laws are more sophisticated, the courtrooms bigger, the proceedings always carefully recorded, but we have more prisoners than any other country in the world and they are disproportionately Black and "guilty" of nonviolent crimes. Torture, beatings, inadequate food, and lack of medical care are still common in US prisons, but prison officials have gotten better at hiding thin [...]

    19. I had no idea that this was the next chapter of the south after emancipation. This book tells the story of one Green Cottenham, from his familial slave roots to his own death in the coal mines of Alabama. The author attempts to tie Green's story with that of thousands of African Americans who were unfairly arrested, ordered to pay outlandish court fees and, eventually "leased" to white farmers and industrialists in a state-sponsored convict leasing system. The book goes into detail of the shocki [...]

    20. I would buy this book for anyone who is marginally interested in this subject. This is an incredibly important and largely unexamined piece of American history. I believe the atrocities of the post-Reconstruction era shape American life much more than antebellum slavery. It is very well written, both in the author's prosaic style and in his exhaustive research. One of the frustrations in scholarship on 19th century African American life is the dearth of written documentation on the lives of aver [...]

    21. Can you imagine the year being 1908 and there being an actual court condoned and operated slave trade in the United States of America? That is exactly what Mr. Blackmon brings to light and it wasn't only a localized problem, it was all over the South. This is a book which I cannot describe, but only recommend. I was disheartened, embarrassed, but relieved to know this era in our history was finally put to rest by some great men like Booker T. Washington, W.B. Dubois, President Roosevelt and a li [...]

    22. I had no idea how the newly emancipated slaves lived following the Civil War. This book presents a convincing case that not a lot changed for the former slaves after the war was over.After the short-lived Reconstruction period, life went back to pretty much the way it was prior to the Civil War. The slaves were technically free, but were in fact still owned by whites. The scheme worked like this. Blacks would be arrested on a trumped up charge and then fined to pay court cost. Not being able to [...]

    23. This was a great book. Well researched, and very insightful. I chose to read it as an audiobook which made it a little harder to follow as there many people mentioned solely by name in each chapter. It didn't prevent me from understanding the overall story, but if I had it to read over again I'd read a text version. The progression of the story was well executed, and it really helped to understand the many ebbs and flows of race relations in our society during the time. In addition, many other b [...]

    24. Although I felt that 100-150 pages could've been shaved off of this book, I nonetheless feel that it's an extremely important addition to the canon of reconstruction era literature. It deals with a topic that is not only not widely recognized but also actively ignored by our collective American consciousness. The author explicitly states that the reason for his undertaking is to actively combat our national ignorance, and I applaud him in that regard. Thought it's a story that for those of us fa [...]

    25. This is another of my "everyone interested in American history should read this book" titles. I think it is a great tandem (or precursor) read with The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration and The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness.

    26. This book tells in chilling, almost-unbearable-to-consider detail the exploitation, brutality and inhumanity that loomed over every black person (and some poor whites) in the south for almost 100 years after the Civil War. Fortunately, the author names the white SOBs - most of them moneyed or in "law enforcement" or the court system - who were responsible for the kidnappings and wrongful imprisonment which subjected captives to slave labor and such sub-human treatment that all "prisoners" were d [...]

    27. I didn't like this book. I didn't like reading it. I had to choke down the first half then break up the rest with wine, murder mysteries and chick lit. After all that, I'm so glad to have read it. Grateful for a new perspective and background on the still heart-breaking state of race relations in the US.

    28. Douglas Blackmon's Slavery by Another Name is SUCH an important book with history that is practically unknown (at least in most circles), but I can't exactly say that I would recommend it to anyone. The basic content of the book was originally published in a WSJ article in 2001. The book's introduction explained that this article received quite the response. Apparently white people felt that “it seemed to be an account of one more important but sadly predictable bullet point in the standard in [...]

    29. "The South deluded itself with the illusion that the Negro was happy in his place; the North deluded itself with the illusion that it had freed the Negro. The Emancipation Proclamation freed the slave, a legal entity, but it failed to free the Negro, a person." -Martin Luther King, Jr.This book took me four years to finish. Not because it isn’t good—it is fantastically researched, well written, and thorough—but because it’s contents are so devastating. Growing up, even as a black America [...]
