Child Slavery in Africa
By: Savannah Reid and Tania Marquez
A Slave: "A person who has lost, or never had, his/her free will and is usually subjected to violent threats" (Greenhaven Press).
When one thinks of slavery, most people's minds goes back to the early 1800's, when white men used the atlantic slave trade and took people captive to work, to be slaves. Yet a lot of people forget about the millions of kids that were also effected and are being affected today. Although that happened centeries ago, slavery, and in particular to this project, african child slavery still occurs today.
The effects of subjecting children unfit for jobs is ultimately dangerous in the end. They are away from their parents and family. They lack education, food, clothing, medical treatement, and supporting shelter.
The effects are harmful to the child in adulthood.
