The Wider Image: Retracing a slave route in Ghana, 400 years on
Tourists gather at the Assin Manso river, Ghana, July 23, 2019. Near the journey's end in Ghana, the captives were given a last, ritual bath in the river before being sold. Today, the Assin Manso site is a sacred place of remembrance. In this area of mangrove swamps, an image of slaves chained by the feet promises, "Never again."
