The included articles are freely accessible online until April 1, 2019 and are accompanied by an introduction from the virtual issue editor, Irina Chukhray, stating:

“The 21st century deals with numerous variations of modern slavery.  The call to end slavery should ideally be an outdated need.  The call to recognize the ways in which social structure divides and disadvantages communities by race should no longer be necessary.”
