SEDALIA, N.C. (AP) - A documentary about the enslavement of blacks after the end of the Civil War will be screened at the Charlotte Hawkins Museum, followed by a panel discussion.

The movie titled “Slavery by Another Name” will be shown Saturday afternoon at the museum, which is a state historic site in Sedalia. Members of the panel include a lawyer, a professor who studies prison systems and a former prisoner.

“Slavery by Another Name” is a PBS documentary that explains how for more than 80 years after the Civil War ended, thousands of blacks were arrested, repeatedly bought and sold and forced to work without pay.

This forced servitude happened to blacks who often were not guilty of any crime.

PBS aired the documentary in 2012.
