Sold [electronic resource]: Fighting the New Global Slave Trade

APT Worldwide
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Evoking the spirit of 19th-century abolitionism, this program enters the lives of three anti-slavery activists in today's developing world. Symphorienne Kessouagni works to protect vulnerable children in rural Togo, keeping them away from traffickers and helping young slaves escape. Sunitha Krishnan is a former Hindu nun in Hyderabad, India, who runs 17 schools for former brothel workers and lobbies officials to enforce anti-slavery laws. Ansar Burney is a Karachi attorney who retrieves Pakistani boys forced to perform as jockeys in the brutal sport of camel racing. Each activist speaks in eloquent detail about his or her experiences and the psychological scars - as well as the resilience - of those freed from slavery.
