February is dedicated as Black History Month, honoring the triumphs and struggles of African Americans and African descendants throughout US and Caribbean history, including the civil rights movement and their artistic, cultural and political achievements. We owe the celebration of Black History Month, and more importantly, the study of black history. This tour guides you through Ghana West Africa to understudy the chronicles of African descent who was forcefully sold into slavery in the Americas and the Caribbean. With this tour we offer the pathways that retrace the layering of differences in the aftermath of colonialism and slavery, as well as other forms of migration and displacement. And, also, the UNESCO Heritage site where in the fourteenth century Elmina Castle and the sixteenth century Cape Coast Castle became two of the most important stops of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade. Elmina castle is the home of the infamous “Door of No Return”.
