I continue to love your activism and voice.
share a doc film that I think would be a great tool for your to include in your efforts to quicly educate viewers about the foundation of past and present African American economic disempowerment. It is a great follow up to the many recent films (Selma, 12 years a Slave, Django Unchained etc) that have been giving Americans- Black, Brown and White, gving new information and perspective on what happened to Black Folks that the history books dont tell, The film is “Slaverry by Another Name ” http://www.pbs.org/tpt/slavery-by-another-name/home..It was a Sundance choice and a pbs documentary.
It was the best treatment I have ever seen about the aggregious economic exploitation of Black Folks that analysed and doucmented the economic costs and impact of Black ongoing “slavery ” from post civil war through the 1950’s. It shines a bright spotliht on issues of incarceration, unemployment and education disinvesment of Black now.that can be used to fuel our quest for specific solutions.
