Slavery was formally abolished in America more than 150 years ago with the passage of the 13th Amendment. Yet, it continues today in the form of human trafficking. Experts say that approximately 20 million to 40 million people worldwide are enslaved and exploited for labor or sex trafficking. It’s prominent in the U.S. as well, with hotspots in New York City, Los Angeles and Atlanta. Descendants of Frederick Douglass, one of the most famous American abolitionists, are continuing Douglass’ fight today by combating human trafficking. Kenneth Morris, Jr., his great-great-great grandson, sits down with Soledad O’Brien to discuss human trafficking in the United States, how education can keep people from being exploited and why children are the most vulnerable.
