PSCI Nancy Billica 9/20/2007 Slavery in the World Today When I think of slavery the first thing I think of is the Transatlantic Slave Trade in the 1800’s. African’s being stripped from their home and sold to rich plantation owners in the Southern United States. But the truth of the matter is that slavery is still very much alive today. Free the Slaves, an organization devoted to finding solutions to slavery worldwide, estimates that “...there are over 27 million slaves in the world today, more than any other time in human history.” Slavery is much different today than it was during the time that the Transatlantic Slave Trade was in effect. Back then slaves were not as abundant and there for were more expensive and this gave their owner a reason to watch out for their health. Today a human being can be bought or sold for under $100, and forced to work in dangerous conditions with little to no pay. These people become property to any buyer who pretty much gets to do whatever he pleases with them.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
