Description

Over two hundred years ago slavery was a fact of life. People were bought and sold in the same way that animals were, or sacks of flour. Often a slave was treated worse than an animal, with little or no regard for life or dignity.



Slavery is still a fact of life for people today. Although slavery has been banished in America, the U.K. and other western countries, people are still bought and sold around the world.



Even in today's liberated democracies children and young people are smuggled across borders and thrown into a life of captivity and worse. Today's slave markets are unseen by most of the world but still destroy countless young lives.



We need to speak out again in the 21st century. Our voices need to be heard.



Catherine House introduces ten voices that spoke out for freedom. These men and women come from different times and different backgrounds but they have one voice - a Christian voice - a voice against slavery.


If you have enjoyed this book - you will also enjoy Voices against injustice (9781845502805) where it records ten Christians who spoke out for justice!

Catherine MacKenzie, Author and CF4K Editor

Voices against Slavery: Writing Voices against slavery was a disturbing experience. It was shocking to read the cruel details of slavery and to realise how long it took to end the slave trade. It was also disturbing to realise afresh that slavery has never ended. The fight against this crime continues today.
To write this book I spent many months researching. I tried to visit places in the UK whose histories are linked to the slave trade. Perhaps the most moving experience was travelling to Sierra Leone in West Africa. Everywhere in Freetown are reminders of the people who fought for the abolition of the slave trade - their names are on road signs, buildings and name places. As I wrote this book I learnt so much from the people who have taken a stand against slavery. Their courage, determination and faith have shone through some of the darkest times in history.
