Slavery has been a part of almost every human civilization in world history. Historical examples date back to Egyptian cultures and Roman Cultures on up to Early America. Many believe that slavery ended with the Emancipation Proclamation but that is simply not the case. There upwards of 27 million or more people enslaved in our modern time. While there are indeed similarities to historical examples of slavery, there are actually many forms of slavery that contradict what most people are taught in their history classes. Certainly comparing plantation slavery to modern day sex slavery would be one prime example of the differences. This presentation will take examples like that and others to raise awareness of new types of slavery that exist around the globe.
