On this day 20 years ago: Dr. Charles Jacobs told the world about modern-day slavery in Sudan
On September 24, 2000, Dr. Charles Jacobs appeared on Boston’s WBZ 4 News with the late John Henning to explain how he helped free tens of thousands of black slaves in Sudan.
The segment was partially in honor of how, six days earlier on September 18, he head received the first Boston Freedom Award from Mayor Tom Menino and Coretta Scott King, Dr. Martin Luther King’s late widow, for his work as a modern-day abolitionist.
Today, however, Arabs and Muslims still own black chattel slaves in five African countries. The fight is not over!
