5.3 – Strategies for the Future

We have studied why slavery thrived in the past and why it continues to thrive in the present. We have studied how abolitionist groups pursued their goals in the past and in the present. For today’s class, we will consider the future of the anti-slavery fight. Your assignment is to be able to answer these three questions:

[1] In your view, what is the best way to convince more Americans that slavery is a problem in today’s world?

[2] In your view, what is one of the most significant steps that the U.S. government should take to improve the effectiveness of its antislavery efforts (either within the United States or abroad)?


[3] After learning the material from this course, what is one thing that you plan to do differently in your day-to-day life?
