Historical Studies professor appears in documentary "Stopping Traffic"


Ben Wright

Arts and Humanities Professor Ben Wright is featured in the film Stopping Traffic, a documentary about sex-trafficking, which will be shown in twelve cities through AMC Theaters from September 29, 2017 to October 5, 2017.

Dr. Wright will be hosting a 15 minute Q&A after the 7:00 p.m. screening on Friday, September 29 at the AMC Valley View 16 theater at Valley View Mall (the north side of 635 and west of Preston Rd).

Check Stopping Traffic’s Theater Locations for updates and/or more information.

Dr. Wright’s research on slavery has created the unique opportunity for him to be involved in the movement to end modern slavery, firmly believing that if we look at our past and understand how these social injustices survived, we can adapt this information to today’s human and sex-trafficking industries to bring forth effective solutions.

Stopping Traffic has won several small independent film awards and Ben Wright is one of the sixteen cast members.
