Rare Photo of slave children. This 150-year-old photo found in a North Carolina attic shows a black child named John, barefoot and wearing ragged clothes, perched on a barrel next to another unidentified little boy. The photo was found at a moving sale in Charlotte, accompanied by a document detailing the sale of John for one thousand five hundred dollars. Let's hope he had a good home. What makes this picture scary is the fact that such human trafficking was once a fact of life in America.
