    Technically illegal so shored up by unlawful lynchings in those areas where it was still maintained. Remember that something being officially "abolished" or even "illegal" does not make it magically disappear any more than other crimes. Other crimes do not disappear instantly when legislators put ink to paper and neither has slavery. In a practical sense, slavery did not end in Georgia until 1974, and they removed the Confederate flag from the Georgia state flag more recently than that.

    There was no record of slavery in the 1930s because slavery was abolished in 1865, marking an end to the American Civil War.

    Most slavery in the 1930s was labor slavery and took place in Africa and Asia where it still persist. Mauritania became the last country in the world to abolish slavery in 1981 but even today between 10 and 17 percent of the population of Mauritania are slaves. According to Freetheslaves.org there are currently about 40 million slaves in the world.

    You have to be more specific. Like what country are you referring to? And are you going by any particular definition of slavery? Like slavery during the 1700’s in America or are you talking about workers not having any rights?
