Goree Island

That's the Goree Island over there. Gorée Island (Ile de Gorée) is a small island just off the coast of Dakar, Senegal's capital city. Goree Island was a major slave-trading center. The Maison des Esclaves (House of Slaves) on the island has become a place of pilgrimage for everyone to reflect upon the horrors of the slave-trade and remember the millions of souls who died because of it.
