LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Experts on human slavery will gather in Lincoln later this month to talk about ways to end the practice.

The fourth annual conference on human trafficking will be held Oct. 11-13.

One of the featured speakers at the event will be James Kofi Annan. He was sold into slavery at age 6 and forced to work in Ghana's fishing industry until he escaped after seven years.

Annan will speak Oct. 11 about the work he has done to end modern slavery.

The goal of the conference is to increase public awareness of slavery and provide a forum to discuss research and efforts to end the practice.
