Imagine what it feels like to be a slave

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.


Narrative: This gives an introduction/overview of what slavery means.

Visuals/Underscore: Animated images & text on screen over dramatic music.


Visuals : Peter S Smith
