There are more slaves in the world today than there were in the 1790s, when the Capitol building was built. They are not only building office complexes, churches, and hotels, they are harvesting food and sewing clothes and assembling cell phones. Slavery is so deeply woven into the fabric of our lives today, that in 200 years, we won’t have enough plaques to commemorate all the slaves who built the world we’re living in.
