Book List and Upcoming Documentary Showing

Hey everyone sorry for the late update to the blog. Been a little busy lately, but here is that book list I promised from the last post. Please note that this is nowhere near a complete list. This is just a sample of books that shed light and provide excellent stories and examples of modern slavery. If you can be sure to pick up a copy of any of these books from Amazon or at the library.

-- The Whistleblower: Sex Trafficking, Military Contractors, and One Woman's Fight for Justice by Kathryn Bolkovac

--Modern Slavery: The Secret World of 27 Million People by Kevin Bales, Zoe Trodd, and Alex Kent Williamson

-- A Crime So Monstrous: Face-to-Face with Modern-Day Slavery by E. Benjamin Skinner

-- Sex Trafficking: Inside the Business of Modern Slavery by Siddharth Kara

-- The Slave Next Door: Human Trafficking and Slavery in America Today, With a New Preface by Kevin Bales

-- Sold: One Woman's True Account of Modern Slavery by Zana Muhsen

-- Not in My Town: Exposing and Ending Human Trafficking and Modern-Day Slavery by Dillon Burroughs and Charles Powell

As I mentioned before, this is really just a small sample of the thousands of books out there on this topic. Just a simple Google search will yield a myriad of results. Please, for the sake of those trapped, check out these books, educate yourselves, and help be a part of the solution.

Coming up as well is the documentary Invisible Children. This is a heart-wrenching documentary about the life of child soldiers in the LRA (Lord's Resistance Army) in Africa. The documentary is scheduled to be shown on Tuesday February 28th from 7:00-10:00 P.M. at the Cardinal Hall in the Student Center. Please attend if you can. It is an excellent documentary and sheds light on a terrible part of humanity.

Well that's it for this week folks. Please check back this upcoming weekend for any new updates and/or news.
