Jabali Smith was a six-year-old in Berkeley, California, when he was trafficked along with his sister over the border into Mexico and held captive by a messianic doomsday sex cult. Slave courageously and boldly chronicles his journey as a child slave - the escape and eventual rise from the ashes of tragedy. A story of unimaginable suffering followed by the discovery of success, love, compassion, and forgiveness.
Jabali spent years being beaten, tortured, starved, sexualized, brainwashed, and confined to a dark closet in both Mexico and the United States. His disappearance and re-emergence years later with no alarms set off within our societal system represents the current fracture of communication allowing human trafficking to flourish into the fastest growing business and commodity in the world.
Instead of remaining bitter, Jabali became a devoted, loving father and founder of The Well Child Foundation, serving children and their need for empowerment in a way that he never experienced as a child. Slave exposes not only the suffering of human trafficking victims but the indomitable spirit of survivors and all that is possible when faith survives the ultimate challenge.
