Jean-Robet Cadet on Oprah Today

Oprah Winfrey's website has a great section about Jean-Robert Cadet, the former Haitian slave now living and teaching here. Cadet appears on "Oprah" at 4 p.m. today (Chs 9, 2) in a show about child slavery.

Got to

Cadet, a teacher at Northern Kentucky University, wrote about his 15 years of slavery in his autobiography, "Restavec: From Haitian Slave Child to Middle Class American." His book was required reading for incoming NKU freshman last summer.

Earlier this year, Cadet established the Jean R. Cadet Restavec Freedom Foundation in Blue Ash to help children in forced domestic slavery and to end slavery in Haiti. He taped "Oprah" in February, and the segment has been edited into a rerun from back then, which is why the information is archived under past shows.

The anti-slavery activist has addressed the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) in New York, a UN slavery committee in Geneva, Switzerland, and the United States Foreign Relations Committee. He was honored as an “Everyday Freedom Hero” last year by the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center.

Colleague Sara Pearce also has links to his book on our LitChick blog at
