The Changing Face of Slavery

Anti-Slavery International (1997)

Diane Louise Jordan presents this well researched video pack which focuses on slavery past and present. The first part concentrates on the transatlantic slave trade and encourages young people to look at why the trade began and its importance for the growth of wealth in Britain. The second part of the video links the growth of that wealth to the Industrial Revolution and the employment of young children. The last part brings the historical roots and the contemporary issues around child labour together.
