| November 28, 2011 | 0 Comments

It’s evident Common had intentions of ending 2011 on a strong note.  The 39- year old Actor/Rapper/Philanthropist  is set to release his 9th studio album The Dreamer/ The Believer on December 20th.  Apparently shooting visuals for “Sweet” were not the only thing on the Chi-town native’s agenda during his recent trip to Hati. He and his film crew, including photographer Steven Taylor, also gathered tons of video and photos of the Restaveks. Common united with  CNN for a documentary in where he embarks on a journey through the earthquake ridden Caribbean island. According to CNN, the some 300,000 Restaveks children are put into forced labor as domestic servants are forced to work in modern day slavery conditions. The objective of the project is to spread the awareness of the issue, aiming to end modern-day slavery. Watch this powerful piece below or learn much more about the documentary at CNN’s Freedom Project website.
