- Modern slavery: 'I had to eat the dog's food to survive' - with pictures and a video - 11 December 2017
"It was already late when Maria, alone in her room, thought about taking her own life by jumping from the seventh floor window.
Her day at work, just on the other side of the door, had again started around dawn and only ended 15 hours later. She felt weak, having not eaten for two days."
- The Alphabet of Slavery
The poem was published in "The Poetry of Slavery, an Anglo-American anthology," 1764 - 1865.
Each letter of the alphabet vividly depicts one aspect of slavery from, "A is an African torn from his home" to "Zealously labour to set the Slaves free"."
