Five Thousand Years of SlaveryBook - 2015/09
Is Slavery past history? Yes and no. Tragically, in our time, slavery wears many faces. Beatrice Fernando had to work almost around the clock in Lebanon. James Kofi Annan's Ghanaian parents sold him because they could not feed him. Thousands of children in developing countries work in factories and on farms at the expense of their freedom. A blurring of the lines between fiction and non-fiction, this title deftly weaves facts about how slavery has operated on several continents into one convincing narrative.
