Perceive More!

I, the Robot/I, the Enslaved

Enslaved Africans Were Treated More Like Disposable Technology Than Human Beings

Like many human beings, I start my day with a cup of coffee, and like an increasing number of us, I check in with one of the four virtual assistants in my home as I do so. What’s on my calendar? Give me the news. Play NPR. What’s the weather like today? Sometimes, especially if my children are present, I say please and thank you. Often times, I don’t.




Perceive More! is a publication that features pieces challenging our understanding of reality and pushes us in wanting to know more.
