Slave State: A Documentary

Wrongfully convicted Louisianian, abolition activist, and co-founder of Decarcerate Louisiana, Curtis Davis wrote and released a self-published book entitled, “Slave State: Evidence of Apartheid in America. The book is the incarcerated author’s attempt to illustrate historical and contemporary failures in the Louisiana Criminal Justice System and firsthand evidence that there is indeed Apartheid in America.

This documentary, produced by Southern University Law Center alumni Marissa K. Bosley, is her first directorial work. The film highlights the evolution of the grassroots campaign by Decarcerate Louisiana and their work to get a ballot amendment.  

As Louisiana residents prepare for November 8th to vote on the abolishment of constitutional slavery, this important documentary traces the history of slavery in Louisiana and the campaign that will finally eliminate slavery from the constitution of Louisiana.  

Colorado, Nebraska, and Utah have already approved similar proposals to end forced prison labor. Click here for more information on HB 298
