The Modern-Day Slavery Museum is in Nashville this weekend, starting noon Sunday at Second Presbyterian Church on Belmont Blvd. From the press release:
The free museum operates out of a replica of a cargo truck where Florida tomato pickers were nightly chained, in circumstances which a 2008 grand jury described as “slavery, plain and simple.” The Museum's exhibits, developed in consultation with workers who have escaped from forced labor operations as well as leading academic authorities on slavery and labor history, focus on the roots of modern-day slavery, the reasons it persists, and solutions.
