Katie Johnson Review: John R. Miller, Slavery in 2004 , (Washington Post: 2004). John R. Miller’s article Slavery in 2004 , provides readers with a clear understanding that there is in fact modern-day slavery occurring throughout the world. One can really grasp what the thesis of the article is from his opening statement referring to human trafficking that “the threat of cutting U.S. aid has brought forth efforts that will free thousands from bondage.” This article is written to inform/educate the reader about modern day slavery and what the U.S. is doing about it. The intended audience for this article is everyone with conscience, a sense of right and wrong. The author uses his first-hand knowledge to make his point valid. His argument is derived from actually speaking with many victims of the slave trade to provide evidence of the slave trade industry.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
