Get To Know Your African Heritage: The GOREE island Tour
To speak English is one thing, but to be able to guide tours in clearly-spoken English is another
Having lived in Chicago for over 12 years and conducted tours at the DUSABLE Museum of African-American History has given me an insight different from other tour guides and allows me to share my unique experience with people interested in Slave Trade History. This Pilgrimage destination has become one of the largest Slave Depot on the African continent. With the right guidance, you will get a clear picture of the last weeks of the Slaves before being shipped across the ocean to American destinations. The island is revered as more of a pilgrimage site.
When you visit the infamous House of Slave, you will get an idea of the sad history of this lovely place but you will also learn the story of millions of Africans whose lives were traumatized, disrupted, and the atrocities that our Forefathers went through for over three centuries
