If you think that slavery was abolished completely with the enactment of the Emancipation Proclamation, then you better think again. Discover the hidden secrets of peonage, convict leasing, vagrancy laws, black codes, and many more atrocities committed against African-Americans post-slavery. You will be shocked to find out about the "cold-hard truths" that are revealed in this activity packet and online video documentary.
This activity pack was designed to be used in conjunction with the (PBS documentary film) that is also attached in this bundle as an online resource. Teachers will find that this is a useful resource for students to use both in or outside of the classroom. (Video/media questions, extended activities for advanced learners, and extra credit project ideas are included.)
