Overview

Slavery is an ancient structure in which individuals are treated not as human beings but as property. The Trans-Atlantic Slave trade was one of the first insistences of human trafficking. It is no wonder why religion serves as a refuge to the slave, an escape to freedom and the Promised Land. Through a belief in God slaves believe their bondage was temporary and reward laid heaven. Faith in God and Him making everything alright by and by, slaves at times were able to mentally and physically endure horrendous situations.

Some slaves never heard of the word church, they called church by other names such as getting religion, prayer or camp meetings. Slaves prayed to God asked for them to be liberated from their masters. Slaves conducting their own church services were thought of as dangerous to the intuition of slavery. Slaveholders were mindful of the possibility religion may bring disloyalty to the slave toward their master.

We are the prisoners of history. Or are we? -Robert Penn Warren

Despite countless struggles to end the institution of slavery, it is still a plague on society. In other words slavery is by no means dead. As many as 27 million men, women and child slaves are forced labors working under horrendous conditions throughout the world. A majority of the human trafficking victims are forced into sexual slavery. No one is insusceptible to slavery. There are no immunizations from the worlds ugliness, no immunizations with the weakened slavery gene to protect innocent people from the horrors of forced servitude.
