Blind Eye

About this resource

This would make a great visual for an introduction to slavery today.  Last line: ‘It’s closer than you think’ could lead to a lesson on bonded labour today and how slavery is illegal everywhere although it exists in the vast majority of countries.

Format

Song: Lyrics echoing Wilberforce’s words ‘You may choose to look the other way but you can never say again that you did not know’.

Visuals/Underscore: Contemporary images of ordinary people, blindfolded and some on screen statistics.
