Top level category meant to include Slavery topics.


Slavery is a system whereby the principles of property law are applied to people, allowing the legal ability to buy and sell other individuals as if they were property. In this system, the enslaved person is not permitted to withdraw from the arrangement and works without remuneration (chattel slavery). Slavery may also refer to any situation where an individual is forced to work against their will (forced labor). See Slavery article at Wikipedia.

Slavery categories do not apply to people who willingly entered into labor without enumeration such as indentured servitude or those who are working off their own debts or criminal sentences.

Place profiles for individuals in the most narrow subcategory identifying location(s) they were enslaved.
