Does Slavery
Still Exist?

Introduction

For many, the following proclamation by Abraham Lincoln and the US Government ended slavery forever.

“That on the first day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, all persons held as slaves within any State or designated part of a State, the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States, shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free; and the Executive Government of the United States, including the military and naval authority thereof, will recognize and maintain the freedom of such persons, and will do no act or acts to repress such persons, or any of them, in any efforts they may make for their actual freedom.” (Abraham Lincoln, The Emancipation Proclamation, 1863)

However, slavery is still a real problem in the “land of the free.”  Right here in the United States there are places where humans are bought and sold on a daily basis.  This course experience examines the issue of human trafficking as a continuing problem both here in the United States and around the world.
