Time: 6:00pm
Location: Wynne Courtroom (Room 100),Inlow Hall, 530 W. New York Street, Indianapolis, IN

Slavery by Another Name is a 90-minute PBS documentary that challenges one of Americans’ most cherished assumptions: the belief that slavery in this country ended with the Emancipation Proclamation. Most Americans do not realize that the constitutions of Indiana and the United States to this day legalize slavery!

Issues to be discussed in the Panel Discussion following the viewing:

  • Should slavery still be legal in Indiana?
  • What are the implications of redress and reparations?
  • What kind of psychology sustains this present reality?
  • Is slavery against international law?
  • What can be done?

This is program is the first in a series. We are starting a movement. Stay tuned; there is more to come.

For this event, the following times apply:

  • 6:00 p.m. - Screening of the documentary
  • 7:30 p.m. - Panel Discussion

You are invited to stay after the screening of this thought-provoking documentary for a probing panel discussion.
