Virtual Goree Island

"Do you remember the days of slavery? How they beat us. And how they worked us so hard. And they used us. 'Til they refuse us. While I remember, please remember."
These words are from one of my favourite songs, Slavery Days, by the grandfather of reggae, Burning Spear (he took his name from the Burning Spear of Kenya, Jomo Kenyatta, the first president of Kenya). In remembrance of slavery and slave trade take a virtual tour of the House of Slaves in the Goree Island, Senegal West Africa.
