Modern Day Plantations with Antoinette Harrell

Join Antoinette Harrell for a discussion on Modern Day Plantations.

Most people tour plantations to learn about life in early times. Antoinette Harrell has conducted research on peonage and involuntary servitude for the past twelve years and has visited several plantations throughout the Mississippi Delta where people have lived for generations without leaving.

In addition, she has interviewed several people who still live on those plantations. What is life like on these plantations today?  Why haven't they left the plantations?  Where are these plantations located?
