Slavery

The story of slavery - from its roots to the present day

Slavery has plagued the history of humankind for thousands of years, from the conquered peoples of Ancient times to the millions of Africans stolen from their homelands and forced into work that helped build America and the modern world. But what was it like to be a slave, endure such terrible hardships and fight for freedom?

Here historical information combines with moving personal stories to give your child the story behind slavery. Maps, charts, timelines and artifacts provide eye-opening context. The testimony of slaves featured in the book will take them behind the statistics. Help them discover the real story behind an evil trade that still exists even today.
