helkinn Xmas photograph of the "staff" of the African Oil Nuts Company & the staff of The Miller Brothers, a Liverpool based company at Badagry in Nigeria (1923). Please let's keep in mind that the abolition of slavery did not actually mean that people were free. You can shout as loud as you want and create as many treaties as you want but when people are coerced to work for little or no pay, when the system is made in a way they can only do what they are told to, for the benefits of others and not for themselves, that's still pretty much being a slave to me. We may be looking away most of the times but, slavery is still well and alive in every continent. It is a contemporary issue, it is just pernicious enough to disguise itself . 1w

helkinn Nice one talking about heritage and all that. But erm... It would have been better to specify. As far as I know, being of Bantu descent myself, Bantu languages share indeed some similarities but they do not form a homogenuous linguistic group. 😐 1w

chlomay_ The international slavery museum is so eye opening. "Slavery still exists. Indeed, it is more diverse and entrenched than it ever was before." 3mon
