    Choose apiece of literature you have read and describe how it has affected you.

    For many people, the image that comes to mind when they hear, the word slavery is the Transatlantic Slave Trade. We think of the buying and selling of people, their shipment from one continent to another and the abolition of the trade in the early 1800s. Even if we know nothing about the slave trade, it is something we think of as part of our history rather than our present. But the reality is, slavery continues today. After reading Francis Bok "Escape From Slavery: The True Story of My Ten Years in Captivity – and My Journey to Freedom in America," I realized slavery is not ancient history. Slavery still exists in Sudan. In Sudan, Africa's biggest country, chattel slavery is making a comeback, the result of a 18-year-old war waged by the Muslim north against the black Christian and south. Arab militias, armed by the government, have been raiding African villages, shooting the men and enslaving the women and children. These people are kept as personal property or taken north and sold. This was the case of Francis Bok. In his autobiography Francis Bok told the story of his life and how they captured him in a raid at the age of seven. An Arab family enslaved him for ten years and Bok escaped in 1996, only to be enslaved by local police officers for two months. An Arab truck driver helped him flee to Khartoum, where security forces arrested and jailed him for seven months. He fled to Cairo when he was released, and in 1999 the United Nations helped him move to North Dakota. Bok has since addressed many members of Congress about the enslaved Sudanese people. He was the first escaped slave to testify before the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations in 2000. Now He works for an anti-slavery group. He said, “ I will not rest until I see my people free.”

    That book made me realize that there is still racism in this world. People think it is okay to enslave others because they are darker then them like the case in Sudan. Finding this out made me realize that slavery was probably not only an issue in Sudan but all around the world. In fact it is. Contrary to popular belief, slavery did not end with Abraham Lincoln in 1865. Experts estimate that today there are still twenty-seven million people enslaved around the world. It is happening in all six inhabited continents, which includes the United States. The CIA estimates 14,500 to 17,000 victims are trafficked into the "Land of the Free" every year. I think that is something everyone should know because I am sure like me many people are not aware of this important issue that affects many people. This book not only informs us about this issue but also makes us a stronger person(at least it had that affect on me). It makes one see that one should never give up always keep trying because some how some way things will change but they only change if one keeps on trying. If this man was once a slave, escaped and now he is an important abolitionist then why can something one believes in also happen. This book has made me keep trying when things get tough I just think of Francis Bok and I know I can do anything.
