Carr Center Fellow, Siddharth Kara, has been named co-winner of the prestigious 2010 Frederick Douglass Award at Yale University for the best non-fiction book on slavery. His book, "Sex Trafficking" is the first book on contemporary slavery to receive the award.

The Frederick Douglass Book Prize was established in 1999 to stimulate scholarship in the field of slavery and abolition by honoring outstanding books. The award is named for Frederick Douglass (1818-1895), the slave who escaped bondage to emerge as one of the great American abolitionists, reformers, writers, and orators of the 19th century.
