2013 – The year of Human Trafficking

Human Trafficking can be traced all the way back to the beginning of the colonization of America. But, recently over the last few years, there has been an increase in the high-profile visibility of organizations involved in not only education about trafficking, but also about organizations involved in helping people who have recently been trafficked.

Yes that’s right Human Trafficking exists today in America as well as other parts of the world. HBA has already been involved with the marketing and promotions of at least two of the newer organizations teaching about Human trafficking domestically and abroad.

Following the box office and Oscar success of Quentin Tarantino’s film Django Unchained, it is not surprising that there are suddenly new movies planned in 2013 with a slavery theme. In fact there are now seven slave themed films set to be released this year.

Never before has Hollywood given this much attention to the plight of human trafficking domestically in the US history.

African-American author and film historian Donald Bogle says “It’s difficult not to question the timing of these films and what it really means,” says Bogle, film study teacher at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. “But I’m also not sure any them will have the same draw that made people go to see Django. That film told the story of slavery in a very unique way that hadn’t been done before and probably won’t be again. Slavery is not a subject in film people rush out to see as a rule.”
