Since the beginning of civilization there have been slaves. Men and women, young and old, black and white, from China to Brazil and everywhere in between, millions have been enslaved. Richard Watkins traces the countless journeys and trials of slaves around the world and throughout time, and champions those who fought against it and helped shape slave-free nations for future generations.
