On the Threshold of Thralldom

A short ferry ride from Dakar, Sengal sits the small but powerfully impressive UNESCO World Heritage site of Gorée Island, known as the last stop for slaves departing their homeland en route to the Americas. Standing on the threshold of the slave house's seaside exit door, you get a strong sense of 'this is the end of life as it was.'
