When people hear the word "slavery," they often think of a barbaric practice that ended many decades ago. In fact, the number of people enslaved today (estimated to be between 12 and 27 million) is the highest in human history; many of the modern-day victims are women and children who have been pulled into the sex trafficking industry. Unbounded uses the music, images, and historical narratives of Jewish and African-American slavery to bring awareness to those who still suffer today. Get Involved: Before and after the performance, you can meet with local groups to find out how you can help fight oppression. Thu 7-9 p.m.
