FROM THE PLANTATION TO THE PENITENTIARY: MAINTAINING THE SLAVE TRADE IN OBAMA’S AMERICA (FTPTTP) is a multi-platform TV & theatrical documentary.
Slavery is alive and well in America today, even under the nose of the first black US president. Few realize that the US constitution still permits slavery: in prison. FTPTTP is a hard-hitting landmark documentary focusing the connection between prisons and slavery, on profiteering in the social justice system of America and the disproportionate impact it has on African Americans communities. With 1 in 20 black people in prison, a proportion that many predict is likely to rise, and more black men currently in prison than ever were enslaved before abolition, how close is America to revealing itself as a slave state again? And what will be the consequences for the future?
On the 150th anniversary of the 13th Amendment which outlawed slavery, the filmmakers will attempt to meet with Obama in an attempt to have slavery outlawed once and for all in America. Including prison.
