Not just T-shirts

Slavery – It’s not just T-shirts

Last Tuesday morning, one mile north of the White House, I sat in the upstairs dining room of a Dupont Circle cafe having a cup of tea with a slave. Well actually she’s now a runaway slave who’s living in the Washington area home of a good Samaritan.

But yes, she could have been considered a slave, if you define that as being bound to a specific area of land, forced to work without compensation, stripped of her passport and left at the absolute disposal of a master.
