The Cape Coast Castle in
Ghana was built for the trade in timber and gold, later
it was used in the trans-Atlantic slave trade.
At that time slaves were a
valuable commodity in the Caribbean and the Americas,
and slaves became the principle item traded in Cape
Due to this, many changes
were made to Cape Coast Castle. One of the alterations
was the addition of large underground dungeons that
could hold as many as a thousand slaves awaiting export.
The last point the slaves
passed was nicked named the Door of no Return. President
Obama and family paid this slave castle a visit.
