Enslaved conjoined twins, Millie-Christine McKoy, would be sold at least three times from infancy to 6 years of age. They were forced into freak shows in the US and UK and endured a traumatic childhood. Their life took a dramatic turn at the age of 14 when freedom allowed them to take control of their career and made them one of the most beloved performance duos of the 19th century who are rarely talked about today.
