Obamas Tour Cape Coast Castle

Ghana’s Cape Coast Castle, one of many African coastal fortresses where captives were held, often for months in crowded darkness, still has the power to chill the blood, to break the heart. The youngest, strongest, most vital men, women and children were held in these dungeons before they were herded through the doors of no return and onto ships for the further horrors of the middle passage and lives of enslavement.

Yes, some argue responsibility all around, but no demand, no supply.
