I Am Slave (watch in full)*
a heart-wrenching film about a woman enslaved through the Arab slave trade for 6 years. based on the autobiographical book entitled Slave:My True Story by Mende Nazer.
this is one of the few films i can find about the experience of Africans that have gone through the Arab slave trade. even more disturbing is the fact that Mende was captured in 1993 in her Nuba village in Sudan. the film mentions that there are an estimated 5,000 women living as slaves in Britain alone. it also theorizes that Arabs are still raiding African villages for the purpose of slavery.
