Author and anti-slavery activist Kevin Bales is interviewed by host Linda Olson-Osterlund about his new book The Slave Next Door: Human Trafficking and Slavery in America Today, co-authored with historian Ron Soodalter. Bales' earlier book on modern slavery, Disposable People: New Slavery in the Global Economy was nominated for a Pullitzer Prize and is largely responsible for shining the international spotlight on this subject. He is the President of the organization Free The Slaves in Washington D.C. In this interview he uses real examples to talk about the different types of slavery that are found throughout our nation. How slaves are hidden among us. Sometimes in the fields or forests but often in urban settings. From household slaves, who often face the most brutal and longest lasting enslavement to construction workers brought in after a disaster.
