9781330913635: Slavery in Mauritania and Sudan, Vol. 1 (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Slavery in Mauritania and Sudan, Vol. 1

The subcommittees met, pursuant to notice at 2 p.m. in room 2172, Rayburn House Office Building, Washington, DC, Hon. Christopher H. Smith, (chairman of the Subcommittee on International Operations and Human Rights), and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, (chair of the Subcommittee on Africa) presiding.

Mr. Smith. This hearing of the Subcommittee on International Operations and Human Rights and the Subcommittee on Africa will come to order.

Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen.

The testimony we will hear today is about the practice of human chattel slavery. Most of us had believed that to a large extent this horrible practice belonged only in the past. But several of our witnesses today will tell us of having seen it firsthand, having spoken with slaves as well as with their slave masters.

According to accounts by anti-slavery activists, including some of our witnesses today, chattel slavery in Mauritania and Sudan is substantially identical to slavery as it was practiced in other centuries. It represents the subjugation of one race by another, or often of members of one religious group by members of the other. It frequently includes the grossest forms of degradation of women and children. Slavery is not to be confused with similar institutions such as serfdom or indentured servitude; however wrong these institutions are. They involve only the ownership of one person's labor by another. In true slavery, the heinous practice of slavery, as we will hear is being practiced today, the master owns the slave's body. He owns the right to decide whom the slave will marry. When babies are born, the master owns the babies and can buy and can sell them. True slavery is about treating people as though they were not people, as though they were things without souls.

We will also hear today from former Congressman Mervyn Dymally, who represents the Government of Mauritania. I understand that Congressman Dymally will testify that slavery no longer exists in Mauritania, at least officially, and that the government is doing its best to eliminate the so-called vestiges of slavery.
