"Slavery by Another Name:
The Re-Enslavement of Black Americans
from the Civil War to World War II"
author Douglas Blackmon
On land owned by U.S. Steel was an unmarked African
American burial ground – and so began a quest to explore
the institutions and complimentary policies that were
responsible for the Post-Reconstruction re-enslavement of
Blacks, to provide the manpower to fuel the growth of
industrialization in the South. As Blackmon probes this
largely unexplored area, he offers us a mirror to reflect
and grapple with the currency of racial disparity.
WHO WE ARE
WORKERS OF THE WORLD TUNE IN! Introducing "Building Bridges: Your Community & Labor Report"
Our beat is the labor front, broadly defined, both geographically and conceptually. We examine the world of work and workers on the job as well as where they live. We examine the issues that affect their everyday lives, with a particular sensitivity towards human rights abuses, environmental concerns and the U.S. drive for global domination. We record their global struggles and provide analysis of their efforts to empower themselves and transform society to provide greater democratic, human, social, political and economic rights. Each program consists of feature stories, generally interviews, within a historical context, often accompanied by sound from demonstrations, rallies or conferences, and complemented and enhanced by poetry and instrumental or vocal -- people's culture.
Over the years Building Bridges has produced a weekly one hour program, Mondays from 7-8 PM EST, covering local, national and international labor and community issues over radio WBAI-Pacifica 99.5 FM in New York. We also produce half hour version, Building Bridges National, which is distribtued to over 40 broadcast and internet radio stations.
