Rights Lab Talk: Freedom After Slavery

Part of a series of free talks from the University of Nottingham’s Rights Lab – the world's first large-scale research platform for ending slavery.

What do shoeboxes, a diamond ring, and Kentucky Fried Chicken have in common? For one survivor of slavery, they are all reminders of her enslavement. Typically, we learn about the horrors of slavery through gory details and images. This talk will give you an inside look at how slavery impacts the seemingly mundane, everyday aspects of a person’s life. Minh Dang is the Executive Director of Survivor Alliance and a PhD student at the University of Nottingham’s School of Politics and International Relations and The Rights Lab.

Suitable for ages 14+
