“Kofi is free today. He was enslaved and rescued at a very young age. He is with his family again (Ghana). Kofi laughs out loud, long and often. It is contagious.” – Lisa Kristine

Kofi, Ghana

“This body of images documents the pain of modern day slavery and the hope of freedom, allowing us to bear witness to the most horrible abuses imaginable and the most astonishing glimpses of the indomitable human spirit. Proceeds from these images directly help fight slavery through Free the Slaves.” – Lisa Kristine

Lincoln, the Movie

Standard

Very difficult dialogues in an old-fashioned English with a very strong accent, “Lincoln” is not an easy movie but worth watching with astonishing Day-Lewis (Lincoln) and Lee-Jones (Stevens) performances. What is even more impressive is to realize that even after 150 years post the abolition of slavery, we are now discussing the fair opportunity in the exactly way they were discussing if black and whites were equal or not at that time. It is revolting to realize that we have to fight for the fair opportunity, and 150 years from now the fair opportunity is going to be something out of discussion. Moreover, it is always shocking to me that we still live in a world where lots of people think that white is superior and, mostly, inequality is nature.
