Anna Malika found herself an unwitting victim of sex trafficking as a vulnerable girl growing up in Greensboro. When she fell under the spell of a projectionist twice her age at a movie theater where she worked, she became trapped in a manipulative relationship that nearly crushed her spirit. Now that she’s free she wants to help other women break the chains of trafficking. The harrowing details are in Sayaka Matsuoka’s cover-story debut in this week’s Triad City Beat.
