Modern-Day Slavery Museum

Silvia Perez, right, and others remove boxes from inside a cargo truck that will be used as the Florida Modern Slavery Museum last week outside the Coalition of Immokalee Workers office in Immokalee. A bloodstained shirt, left, taken from a victim in one of seven slavery cases that the CIW helped to get prosecuted is encased in glass and will be on display in the museum. Beginning Sunday, a replica of the cargo truck used to enslave Immokalee tomato farmworkers, a case that was prosecuted in 2008, will be on a statewide tour. The  CIW will kick off a six-week tour with the Florida Modern-Day Slavery Museum that will end with the Farmworker Freedom March from Tampa to Lakeland, Fla., April 16-18. Lexey Swall/Staff
