Humanities 7 – Ghana Slave Memorial Debate Reflection

Humanities 7 – Unit 4.1 Slave Memorial Project

Unit 4.1 Slave Memorial Project

In this unit, we have been focused on how Africans shaped and were shaped by the Atlantic Slave Trade (from 1500 to the 1880s). Within this 400-year period, Europeans built more than sixty (60) forts and castles along the Ghanaian coastline to defend their trade; primary among this trade was the purchase and sale of enslaved Africans. But how do we choose to remember this history? Many of these monuments still exist as a reminder of the past, some in good condition, others in ruins. Are these buildings worth preserving or should they be used in some other way?
