BET comments that "as a nation we now realize that the fight is not only in Nigeria, but it is also in our own backyards here in Atlanta, Georgia. The Urban Institute’s most recent study (2007) said the underground trading of women in Atlanta is a $290 million industry. In 2014, the study found that pimps in Atlanta earn between $5,000-$33,000 per week, selling our children." This Saturday, May 17th at 3:00PM BET will have a discussion moderated by Lola Ogunnaike and Marc Lamont Hill so your own voices can be heard as this is very audience opinionated and involvement.
