Kate Taylorabout this book: When I became aware of child slavery in many areas of the world, in making many products, I felt accountable for my knowledge. I focused on chocolate because nearly everyone knows and loves the taste. Captive to Cocoa is about one woman, Catherine Anne Campbell's journey to find out about child slave labor on cocoa farms in West Africa, primarily Mali and Côte d'Ivoire. Cathy is headstrong and willful, bucking the system often to reach her passionate goals of making people aware of Women's Rights and now the child slavery issue. While in Africa, Cathy rescues a little girl, Yene, but not without issues that could cost her and Yene's lives.
Readers will be affected by reading Captive to Cocoa, and can help effect change!
This book took nearly a year with research and the story.
Children who suffer at the prisons of the cocoa farms are held captive. Their blood is on the cocoa beans.
The cover designed by me, shows Yene's trepidation. Is she anxious because a guard from the farm has found her, or is she sizing up Cathy who will try and save her?
The most difficult part of writing Captive to Cocoa is knowing that while I help create awareness, the children,ages 4 through 17 yrs, and then some, are still slaves, still captive to cocoa.
