The poem depicts the attitudes of those who were made free earlier to those who were still tied by Apprenticeship to the estates. Continue reading

Choose a TED speaker that  has published on human trafficking  and write a literature  review on it. Use only published, peer-reviewed articles for your references.

You usually don’t need to talk about yourself unless you have a really good reason e.g. personal experience–used sparingly–or primary research–interviews, surveys, etc. that you have personally written and conducted.
