photos from the Convict Leasing System of post-civil war centered around Alabama. Convict Leasing was another form of slavery in which mostly Black people were charged with false or trivial offenses and forced to labor while in prison. beatings, sometimes resulting in death, and all around dehumanizing behavior were as similar as during slavery. 

Excerpt: “Slavery By Another Name” - Douglas A. Blackmon

"Nearly all the men thrown into Slope No. 12 shared the same difficult background of deep poverty and the circumscribed opportunities of their Black Belt origins. They came in hues every man of the Black Belt could describe - deep dark like country night, gingercake, the high yellow of mulattoes, the sharp features of red bone. They were farmhands mostly. Baptists and Methodists. Nearly all were the children or grandchildren of slaves. Most knew the families who had once owned their kin. They all knew no black  man would ever see justice in the prisons of white men."
