Mores than pictures

Hey! Hey! Hey! Come with us and step into 5 centuries of history tracing the origins of Kunta Kinteh, The Gambian who was taken to the Americas.

This is another trip, which makes you meet fellow brothers and sisters from the Diaspora and also gives you a chance of visiting many historical sites.

Our first stop will be at Albreda, where you will see the freedom flag pole and also visit the slave museum. The essence of stopping here, is to explain how the freedom flagpole came into being, which is nowadays one of our national monuments since 1970.

From here we proceed ontop Juffureh, which is the village of the famous slave who was forced into slavery in the mid-seventeenth century; Kunta Kinteh. It is on whom Alex Haley has based the history of his best seller Roots, which retraces the event of the transatlantic slave trade.
