Questions about American history that need public answers

The history of legalized human trafficking in America is a story that should be widely known and told:

  • How did it start?
  • What was taught to attempt to justify it and to keep it going?
  • What was it like for its victims and its perpetrators?
  • Why did it last so long?
  • How could such oppression be embraced by a society that treasured liberty?
  • Who were the courageous people who openly opposed it?
  • Why weren’t there more of them?
  • Why are its perpetrators honored while the abolitionists who spoke out against it are forgotten (or even villainized)?
  • Why did so many American churches support and embrace such cruelty?

The honest story of slavery in America should not be forbidden history.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
