Shamere McKenzie is an American survivor of modern-day slavery. She gave a stirring speech at the 2010 Freedom Awards, in support of her friend and mentor Tina Frundt (a survivor of child sex trafficking, who won the Fredrick Douglass award for her tireless activism against slavery).
If you’re in the New Orleans area, you’ll get a chance to see Shamere, because she’ll be speaking at Loyola University New Orleans! The event is open to the public.
