Before I began interning at Society B, to me, slavery in America was history. When I thought of slavery, I thought of the Civil War, the north and south, and about the cultural impact it still has on our country. I viewed slavery as a thing of the past. But the truth is as time has passed, slavery has taken on a new image. Modern day slavery is alive and well; it is now known as human trafficking.
