    In this groundbreaking historical expose, Douglas A. Blackmon brings to light one of the most shameful chapters in American history - an Age of Neoslavery that thrived from the aftermath of the Civil War through the dawn of World War II.

    What did you love best about Slavery by Another Name?

    This book tells about a piece of our nation's past that many people do not know about. The author puts the story together well, and it is well researched.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The narrator mispronounced too many words -- the most frustrating mispronunciation was that of W.E.B. DuBois -- he pronounced the name DuBwah. Every time I heard the name mispronounced, I cringed. Someone who is going to narrate a work of history should really check out how to pronounce the names of famous historical figures before he begins.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    There already is a film coming out -- I will have to see what the tag line is.
