Some thoughts from the book

Somewhere in between all the creeds and dogmas of faith lies a beautiful place of human compassion and the ability to relate to one another on the same level. There are many that have a genuine love for the people of the United States and long to see better days but standing in the way of fulfillment lies a sense of entitlement that exists as a cancer upon the collective American soul that divides us from the equality inherent to us as children of God. Coupled with the influences of the authoritarian hierarchy that maintains its power structure by the divide and conquer mentality, the theft of dignity and innocence from millions of our sisters and brothers has been brutal, leaving countless people unable to recover.

More recently I’ve watched the light in our Statue of Liberty fade, with the evidence that our own policies are destroying lives not only in America but across the world. We are becoming like those we have been battling for decades, and our lip service of human rights is belied by our actions of torture and hypocritical policies of “stand your ground” and unrestrictive gun laws. Cultural terrorism, violence, hatred, and the like permeate our states and metropolitan cities. Laws are no longer of government but rather indeed are of persons—those who pay to escape prosecution, bringing no justice for their victims. We do not do what we say. Our light is going out.

So why this book, and why now? We have to knock on hearts while we endeavor to call the dead back to life. We are at a crossroads in American history, a place of such deep divisions that dramatic change in every facet of our social structures is necessary if we are going to prevent the continued destruction of innocence, including the innocence of those who have been deceived by the erroneous dogmas of our three greatest institutions: religion, economics, and politics.

Slaves of a Different Kind shines a light into the deep crevices of our own soul. It is to reveal the unholy attitudes of people of faith, the intentional methods of corporate America to enslave consumers to purchase products, and the treasonous attempts by the most disconnected Congress in generations to derail the progress we have made as a country. If we are able to embrace and repent from the damaging issues within ourselves and the elements of division and turmoil in which we have been complicit, good will come.

Reviews of and for Slaves of a Different Kind

“Yvonne offers us a prophetic cry from the heart that any American with a conscience will respond to. Do you love your family? Do you want a better future for them? Then read this book. As Yvonne says, ‘We are in the evolutionary emergence of truly understanding our responsibility for one another. We understand why capitalism has failed on a cultural as well as a societal level.’ Slaves of a Different Kind offers us a passionate sermon on the way out of the mess we’re making of our world and our lives.”
—Frank Schaeffer, author of Crazy for God

“Though it has always existed, human trafficking is now way out of hand because of the emergence of the internet and easy access to pornography. Yvonne William’s book, Slaves of a Different Kind, provides insight into the cultural roots that are fueling human trafficking industry (and many other egregious crimes) that causes 100,000+ children to be victimized, exploited, and trafficked in our country today. My hope is that this book will cause us to examine ourselves and contribute to bringing greater awareness of this major issue in America’s public arena.”
—Bobby Schuller, pastor of Hour of Power

“Slaves of a Different Kind is a must-read for every American. Yvonne strikes directly at the core issue pervading every aspect of our culture and opens the way for fresh energy in overcoming our social ills. She speaks eloquently of the crisis in our value system, offers concrete help for healing ourselves, and affirms that our cherished ideals which created this country can reemerge to move us forward positively now and for future generations.”
—Donna D’Ingillo, author of Teach Us to Love – Finding Unconditional Love through Communion with God

“People who grapple with the problem of human trafficking usually approach it from a small-picture perspective—public policy, law enforcement priorities, rescue strategies, etc. But this is like nipping at the heels of an ever-growing monster, says Yvonne Williams. In Slaves of a Different Kind, she gives us a refreshing and inspiring big-picture approach to ending human trafficking. She talks about draining the monster’s lifeblood by changing America’s culture and augmenting spirituality. There is no alternative, she says, to undertaking this titanic but doable task.”
—Bob Selle, journalist

“Our future as a nation is at stake! Frederick Douglass once said, ‘No man can put a chain about his fellow man without at last finding the other end fastened about his own neck.’ Slavery both past and present is our national crime. As a nation we have to either break free of our addiction to slavery once and for all or forever be bound to our ancestral sin. Yvonne G. Williams gives a clarion call for all of us to understand our greatest national battle in the 21st century… American children being taken captive by Modern Slavery! This book is a must-read.”
—Mike Berry, senior pastor, Cross Rhythm Church, Annapolis, Maryland

“What does racism have to do with human trafficking? Truly more than you think, and yes, it has to do with the soul of America that needs to be unshackled. How? Read this thought-provoking and timely book by Yvonne Williams about one of the most insidious, hidden, and growing plagues threatening American society. Yvonne’s analysis, from the inside out, will challenge you personally, especially if you are a person of faith. Unless and until we begin to see all kinds of slavery from the perspective that Yvonne offers, we will never find healing for the American soul.”
—Angelika Selle, president, Women’s Federation for World Peace USA; vice-president, WFWP International

“Slavery is without a doubt the world’s oldest form of oppression. Slaves of a Different Kind gets to the heart of the matter. Author, Yvonne Williams, reveals the not-so-hidden enslaving practices and mind-sets that threaten our nation’s sense of morality and ethics. However, just when the hour seems darkest, Yvonne reminds us that we can break the chains of slavery and fulfill America’s promise of freedom, liberty, and justice for all. She encourages us to live in the biblical spirit of ‘brotherly love’ for all mankind. Read this book and be inspired!”
—Bill Haley, president, The Alex Haley Roots Foundation

NEW BOOK PROJECTS A REBIRTHING OF THE NATION

While we watch the light in our Statue of Liberty fade, with the evidence that our own policies are destroying lives not only in America but across the world, there is hope in knowing that somewhere in between all the creeds and dogmas of faith lies a beautiful place of human compassion and the ability to relate to one another on the same level.
Author, Yvonne G. Williams, reveals the current depiction of American culture in: Slaves of a Different Kind: Unshackling Our Soul to Heal America and suggests that, “We are at a crossroads in American history, a place of such deep divisions that dramatic change in every facet of our social structures is necessary if we are going to prevent the continued destruction of innocence, including the innocence of those who have been deceived by the erroneous dogmas of our three greatest institutions: religion, economics, and politics.

As President of Network for Cultural Change (formerly Trafficking in America Task Force) Williams’ aim from the very onset of her work has been to, “…understand the root causes driving the atrocities of this modern day slavery. The discoveries resulted in the essence of Slaves of a Different Kind and an attempt to answer the question that so many people ask: Why?”

Her book Slaves of a Different Kind: Unshackling Or Soul to Heal America is a non-fiction account of the underlying forces within America that are fueling crimes such as human trafficking, the fruit on the tree of American culture.

Reviewers of the book agree that it is time for such a work to come forth. Frank Schaeffer, author of Crazy For God, says of Slaves of a Different Kind, "Yvonne offers us a prophetic cry from the heart that any American with a conscience will respond to. Do you love your family? Do you want a better future for them? Then read this book. As Yvonne says 'We are in the evolutionary emergence of truly understanding our responsibility for one another. We understand why capitalism as we have known it has failed on a cultural as well as a societal level! Slaves of a Different Kind offers us a passionate sermon on the way out of the mess we're making of our world and our lives."
Yvonne Williams is a professional artist, author, and screenwriter.
