Publisher's Summary

I Am Not Your Slave is the shocking true story of a young African girl, Tupa, who was abducted from southwestern Africa and funneled through an extensive yet almost completely unknown human trafficking network spanning the entire African continent. As she is transported from the point of her abduction on a remote farm near the Namibian‑Angolan border and channeled to her ultimate destination in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, her three‑year odyssey exposes the brutal horrors of a modern-day middle passage.

During her ordeal, Tupa encounters members of Africa’s notorious gangs, terrifying witch doctors, mysterious middlemen from China, corrupt police and border officials, Arab smugglers, and high‑ranking United Nations officials. And of course, Tupa meets her fellow trafficking victims, young women and girls from around the world.

Tupa’s incredible experience, including her daring escape and eventual return home, sheds light on the most shocking aspects of modern-day slavery today, as well as the essential determination to be free.

I love slave stories. They are SO much still part of real life and one could be next door to you. I'll never be impressed with anyone who has visited Dubai and says 'it's great'. It's not. It's a country built on slaves. Still.
