In today's terms, we may know slavery as a different term - human trafficking.The Thirteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution completely abolished slavery.The Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution declared that all persons born or naturalized in the United States are American citizens including African Americans.The Fifteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits denying a citizen the right to vote based on that citizen's race, color, or previous condition of servitude.Source:

U.S. Laws against slavery

India's Infringement Upon Human Rights

According to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, "No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms." (Article 4).

The Indian economy is almost entirely dependent upon slave labor. There is a lack of laws prohibiting it. Examples of violations upon human rights include forced labor camps, sex trafficking, and child soldiers.

Modern Slavery In India

The topic of slavery was interesting to me because modern slavery is such a foreign and strange concept to us as citizens in the United States. Oftentimes, when we hear the term "slavery" we imagine the African American Slave trade centuries ago. However, in actuality, slavery is still prevalent in certain areas of the world, and is especially severe in modern India.

    praise: i liked the way the presentation looked, the text boxes and the background looked good together. I also liked the historical background about american slavery.
    probe: what is the extent of indian slavery? Why is their economy still based on slavery? Why is there no authorities to stop indian slavery?
    Propose: I think maybe the section about indian slavery could be longer and more in depth because it is an interesting topic.

    This presentation is very informative and well-written. The video showed how real the problem of slavery is in India and it was impactful and emotionally appealing. I also liked how you wrote why the right interested you. Maybe if you had more time you could add more statistics.

    Probe: In what part of India does the video take place? Is slavery all over India, or only in specific areas?

    2.What were the conditions under American Slavery before it was abolished?
    3.You might want to include more written facts/statistics about Indian slavery.
