We are at one with creating awareness on the persistence of slavery not only in the United States but the whole world as well. Our main goal is to reduce the victim of slavery, if not totally eradicate it.
Slavery existed as long as the time of Christ. Even dating way before that, slaves were already known to exist. In every part of our history, one way or another, they play an important role that created what we known to be our society today.
Contrary to what people know, slavery has no color. It is neither black nor white. It is not bound in any race, or in any country of origin. Although there were many accounts of slavery happening to certain races such as the blacks from United States, and to some races that were victims of invasions and have become exploits of wars, slavery is not just confined to those situations. Slavery could happen to anyone, anywhere, anytime.
In fact, slaves are still as real as today as they were before. Perhaps the situation is not just as dire as it was before, but it still exists. It just took a more domesticated form.
US National Slavery Museum is an independent organization that aims to educate about the slavery in the society. With the fast developing technology, and improvement of livelihood and economy at present, you may think that such practice is already eradicated. Unfortunately, it is not. There are still some places around the globe where capitalists continue to take advantage of cheap labor through slavery.
The condition range from horrid and insuferrable, up to sometimes being deadly enough to cause irrevocable damage to the physical and physiological well-being of an individual. What is worse is that, they are not the only ones affected, but their sons and daughters as well. The lifestyle of the whole family is restricted, and the kids are seen as the next generation “slaves.” Such is persistent even in suburban areas that boast good neighborhood with dream-like contemporary garage doors like those in Phoenix, AZ.
Tracing the history, many have already died just to set the slaves in the history free. Numerous revolutionary tactics was put into action just to give them the equal rights they deserve. This is why it is such a bothersome news that there are people who still have not been freed from the clutches of slavery.
Career-oriented individuals call for a need to have additional hands at home. In a form of househelps that provide labor in exchange of compensation and benefits, there is a mutual understanding that transpire to make life better for everyone. While this could be a form of slavery, the reasonable salary the househelp receives easily offset this notion. This compensation pays off what was due for the labor done.
This is not the same thing when it comes to slavery. Slaves do not enjoy the same benefit. In fact, they endure more. They are treated nothing more that a property for the owner’s convenience. They do not have any rights, and just follow blindly anything their masters would say. They sleep in the most despicable places and do not even the barest ability to provide for their own basic needs.
This is what we hope to adress here at US National Slavery Museum Organization. We find intervention so that such situations would not persist. We find away to free them and give them back the rights that are taken away from them, and we give them a new hope.
