Imagine lying in a deeply comatose state while surrounded by a burning fire. The blaze continually disseminates yet you remain in such a deeply dismal slumber the ensuing harm goes unrecognized. Then out of the flames rings an alarm, one reverberating through the chaos, awakening you to the contiguous danger. ''Africa un-slaved; Volume I: The Chains of Modern-day African Slavery and The Steps to Our Liberation'' is exactly that, a lurid alarm shaking, moving, and impelling the reader to recognize the impeding danger and escape before it consumes them.
