Hear the moving words of a local trafficking survivor once held as a slave at a Los Angeles elder-care facility. Part of the audio work "I'm Invisible: Surviving Slavery in 21st-Century Los Angeles," the segment is drawn from interviews conducted with members of the L.A.–based Coalition to Abolish Slavery and Trafficking and featured on listening stations in the exhibition. Produced by Ben Rubin. Recorded by StoryCorps.
Listen to an excerpt from the sound installation Amplify, by Ben Rubin, a commissioned work that weaves the voices of women and girls of Rwanda as they sing of love, loss, family, redemption, and celebration. In this clip, a teacher at the National Institutes of Rwanda sings a traditional lullaby. The lyrics are translated as follows:
Listen carefully, my children. I gave my love to you. Promise me, all of you, wherever you will go, let it be your light, days and nights. May nothing scare you. Have no fear.
Celebrate together, knowing well that this is your time. If people chase you away or ignore you, keep going! I will not leave you alone. I will stay with you. I will take care of what troubles you. I will provide for you. When you go to them, do not be afraid. The spirit that torments you—I will kick it out, overthrow it, and shame it. Don't be afraid.
