Counsel at Human Rights Watch, visited Sudan in 1995 and met with several children who escaped slavery

Last week, we decided to address an issues that’s seeing an explosion on interest in the African American press: Slavery in the Sudan. Unfortunately this issue exploded on the air in a heated discussion between the Nation of Islam and a leader in the anti-chattel slavery movement. In the midst of the verbal fisticuffs, we felt that not enough basic information about the issue was communicated, so we’ve invited a member of the non- partisan human rights community on the air to tell us about her research into slavery in the Sudan.
