modern day slavery

    • Titled “Troubled Waters”, the documentary quotes an International Labor Organization report that claims that “In Ghana, 20,000 children work as slaves in the fishing industry”

    Member of Parliament (MP) for North Tongu, Mr Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has indicated that he wants the government to respond to claims contained in a recent CNN documentary that traffickers buy children for as little as $250.00 to work as fishermen on Ghana's Volta Lake.

    • Whole economies were birthed. Entire generations secured position in society, because slaves broke their backs, and gave their lives.

    It's been 400 years since the first slaves landed in Virginia. Something terrible berthed with that first shipload. Consequences persist today. Societies disrupted. Families torn apart. Humanity challenged in ways that belong nowhere in a world that makes sense.

    • But well, yesterday just passed with little or no notice.

    Written By Hardi Yakubu - Yesterday was UN’s international day for the remembrance of the victims of slavery and the Trans-Atlantic slave trade. As I pointed out, the day passed without much notice, not even by black people whose ancestors were the principal victims of this heinous crime. Why? Indoctrination and self-hate.

  • Frederick Douglass, the revered former slave turned abolitionist and orator, once wrote, “It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.”
