Moses

Watch Uzoma Okoro's film, 'Moses', starring Lenard "Kyd" Jackson. Moses is a touching story of a talented teen soccer player from Africa who has dreams of playing professional ball. He is contacted by 'sports agents' who trick him into the world of American sexual enslavement. 
Sex trafficking is often labeled alongside young girls and inner cities. This film explores a lesser-known side of sex trafficking and human slavery. Okoro says that in African countries where soccer is possible, the 'Moses' storyline happens far more often than you'd think.
He goes on to say that these young black males who are tricked are not only for sexual purposes but to commit crimes on their behalf.
