Abstract:

The author shares her story of trafficking and slavery while living in an upper-middle class suburb of Detroit, Michigan. At fifteen years of age, she was drugged, raped, and tortured for two long years. Kept in bondage, forced to pay back an impossible debt. All the while living at home, attempting to keep family safe and attending school during the day along side of her abusers. Only to be called into 'service, ' late each night, while her unknowing family slept. Involuntarily involved in a large criminal ring, she endured more as a child than most adults will ever face their entire lives. In The sacred bath, she discusses how she healed the wounds of slavery and offers advice to parents and professionals on preventing this from occurring. She also educates and gives facts on human trafficking in modern day America.
