On Saturday Professor Brian Arbic and Adam Simon took the 6 student researchers on a trip to Cape Coast to see the slave castles. When we arrived in Cape Coast we took a guided tour through the castles. We learned the history of how the African slave trade started up and the reasons the castles were built. This was a very eye opening experience for me because it allowed me to see the conditions that my ancestors had to face. The African Diaspora was a very difficult situation for individuals and the world as a whole.
As a whole I am glad that we had the opportunity to go see the castle. After touring the castle we explored around the city of Cape Coast.
