Dr. Monk

Feel your way through the forts

An old cloud looms over our heads. It has a big impact on how we live today, but few bother to look up at it. What is it?

Let's take a long walk around these forts and castles to find out. In Ghana, you find many of these spaces. Designed and built by people, to store and ship other people into oppression. The implications of the interaction between Europeans and Africans between the 15th and 19th century are incessant, boundless and ever present. What implications do you still see?

P.S. Did you know that we did not leave slavery behind in history? In our world of today, there are more people working in slavery than ever before.
