 I watched PBS' "Slavery by Another Name" last night. It was so good! No historian defending white supremacists in it. Actually, those historians who bought and sold the lies about Reconstruction that used to be dominant seem to be silent these days. I think most of them are dead, actually. Reputable history departments and publications aren't buying the narrative of Northern carpetbaggers, former slaves unready for freedom, and noble white Southern aristocrats any longer.

Anyway, PBS is still streaming it here:  http://video.pbs.org/video/2176766758 . It does have that schtick with actors dressed up in period clothes and looking directly into the camera, which I find kinda goofy. But it is less goofy in this program than in any I've seen before.
