"The Slave House of the Goree Island is an historic site, a place of remembrance,, is a very important journey that must be made by all Africans, to see the atrocity that humanity has lived for centuries,  emotionally, I was able to measure the extent and severity of the wounds suffered our ancestors African black undergone by by human beings like them. I discovered in my country Cameroon, in the lcoastal region, our ancestors were slaves owners and traders, it is important to continue to talk about the slavery as long as we are on earth that the generations to come, and ourselves can know what we experienced as an injury and what the human being could endure, not to accuse but to heal and reconcile the peoples in the hope of building a world more harmonious and more respectful of human rights and solidarity with each other", Sammuel said.

A girl walks past a flag of Ghana outside the Cape Coast Castle, in Ghana, July 28, 2019. Cape Coast Castle was used as a slaving post from where slaves were bought and sold and then shipped to the US and other countries. The 400-year anniversary of the first slave boat to arrive in America from Africa has caused a rush of interest in heritage tourism in West Africa, as ancestors go back to ancient sites to delve into a dark and often hidden past.

Kwaku Agyei, 71, a pastor and resident of Obuasi, tells the story of slave trade to young workers in his neighbourhood, in Obuasi, Ghana, July 25, 2019. "They captured us because they realised we were very strong," the Agyei said. "They sent our ancestors to work on sugar plantations. The slave trade made us realise that the white man was cruel." But many rulers of West African empires, such as the Ashanti kingdom, whose descendants still live in this part of modern-day Ghana, also profited, selling captured slaves in exchange for guns, cloth, alcohol and other Western manufactured goods. "Our elders exchanged their children for 'nice things' like matchboxes," Agyei said. But once again, his pride in his heritage shows through. "I can say our ancestors were the ones who developed America," he says. REUTERS/Francis Kokoroko SEARCH "SLAVERY JOURNEY" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.

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.
