        Hear Our Voice

        This Slavery by Another Name education unit focuses on examining the use of music and poetry to reveal the hopes and frustrations of those impacted by forced labor. Students will interpret field hollers and a chain gang song. Students will also analyze songs from popular artists of the early twentieth century who produced music about the changing work dynamics as the country moved further into the industrialization period.

        Descendants

        This video clip features Sharon Malone and Tonya Groomes, both of whom are descendants of forced laborers. Groomes is a descendant of Green Cottenham, a young man who was charged with vagrancy and forced into labor, only to die shortly afterward. His story is featured in the film and also provides the primary arc for Douglas A. Blackmon’s book Slavery by Another Name. In this clip, the two women discuss the need to know their history and why it’s important to give voice to their forgotten ancestors.
