SLAVERY



As part of the recognition of Black History Month, today's Christian Science Monitor contains another article on SLAVERY . This one touches on slavery in 2007. The United Nations reports that there are approximately 27 MILLION people around the world in unpaid servitude. And 200,000 are in the United States of America!

The photo is a picture of a statue of William Wilberforce, the 19th Century British politician who led the fight for elimination of the slave trade.
