1807? – 2007!

One of the aims of the Hull Freedom Trail documentary was to highlight the issue of slavery today. Wilberforce spent most of his life campaining against the slave trade but the law outlawing slavery was ratified in 2007. We spend an afternoon with a group in Nouachchott, Mauritania, when we arrived there were half a dozen of so people there and as time went on the room filled to standing room only, all with a story to tell.
