The traces of colonialism in Senegal: Goree Island


Only one of the 28 “slave houses” in Goree has been restored to its original form and organized as the “Slave House Museum”. Here, items belonging to that period are exhibited, especially the cellars where the slaves were kept waiting, the pots where they ate, the shackles attached to their wrists and ankles.
