The right of ownership over individuals found in all major societies, exploiting masses of people and contributing to the wealth and power of privileged civilizations. From the oriental slave trade to transatlantic slave trade that pillaged Africa of its peoples and riches, Annie and Nico explain this tragic phenomenon with compassion, clarity, and the keys to how we can reconcile with history’s tragic past in this important pocket-sized book, perfect for classrooms and libraries.

Most recently, putting his history background to good use, Erre has teamed up with artist Sylvain Savoia to create the series THE THREAD OF HISTORY, set on bringing the past to vivid life for younger readers.
Born in 1969, Sylvain Savoia grew up in France, and discovered comicbooks at a young age. In 1989, he registered at the Saint-Luc art school in Brussels. Savoia enjoys a prolific international career illustrating comics.
