○I started learning about slavery, for I had certainly known it exsisted in the world, but not to such a degree.
After we finished talking, I felt so horrible and honestly ashamed at my own lack of knowledge of this atrocity in my own lifetime.

○ Back in the kilns, I wanted to cry, buy abolitionist next to me quickly grabbed me and he said, "Lisa, don't do that. Just don't do that here."
And he clearly explained to me that emotional displays are very dangerous in a place like this, not just for me, but for them.

○Some don't even know they're enslaved, people working 16, 17 hours a day without any pay, because this has been the case all their lives.
 They have nothing to compare it to.

○It's all around us. We just don't see it.

○Even still, he has a dream that he will become free and become educated with the help of local activists.
