The Wider Image: Retracing a slave route in Ghana, 400 years on 
Nana Assenso stands at the grave of his uncle, remembering the man he loved but also a past that has haunted his family for generations. His uncle was called Kwame Badu, a name that has been passed on through the family in remembrance of an ancestor with that name who was captured and sold into slavery long, long ago. "Growing up, I was told the story of two of my great-great-grand-uncles Kwame Badu and Kofi Aboagye who were captured and sold into slavery," says Assenso, 68, the chief of Adidwan, a village in Ghana's interior. He followed the family tradition and named his youngest son Kwame Badu. This month marks 400 years since the first recorded African slaves arrived in North America to work plantations in what were then English colonies. In the centuries after, European slave traders shipped millions of African men, women and children across the Atlantic Ocean. Many died in horrific conditions on the slave boats, while survivors endured a life of misery and backbreaking farm work. For some of them, the terrible journey began here, deep inside Ghana. Captured by slavers, they were marched along dirt tracks for 200 kilometers (125 miles) to slave castles perched on the Atlantic Coast, where they boarded ships for North America. They never saw their homeland again. Two Reuters photographers retraced one of the routes they took to those ships, gathering images and stories about the long-lasting impact of a hateful trade in humans.

Cliffs stand against the ocean on the northern coast of the island of Santo Antao, Cape Verde 
Cliffs stand against the ocean on the northern coast of the island of Santo Antao, Cape Verde December 27, 2013. Portuguese colonial officers in the 17th and 18th centuries perceived the West African slave-trading hub of Cabo Verde as a dead-end posting - often literally because of its propensity for drought and tropical disease. Today the wind-pummeled, volcanic archipelago 600 km (370 miles) off the coast of Senegal is a growing tourist spot, offering dramatic landscapes for hikers, along with a vibrant music scene and year-round sunshine. In the past three years, the number of tourists going to Cabo Verde - also known as Cape Verde - has beaten the rate for Africa's $34 billion market, growing on average each year by nearly 20 percent, according to a U.N. Report. Picture taken December 27, 2013. REUTERS/Jean-Francois Huertas (CAPE VERDE - Tags: TRAVEL SOCIETY)

A boy from the Garifuna ethnic people, who is participating in a re-enactment of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ on Good Friday during Holy Week, takes a shortcut to get back to the procession in Livingston, 350 km (217 miles) northeast of Guatemala City, March 29, 2013. Holy Week is celebrated in many Christian traditions during the week before Easter. Garifuna are descendants of Carib and Arawak indians and West African slaves who settled along the Atlantic coast of Guatemala, Belize, Nicaragua and Honduras after the British deported them from St. Vincent in the 18th century.
