President Clinton ends his 12-day tour of Africa today with a tour and a speech at Goree Island off the coast of Dakar, Senegal. Arguably one of the most significant visits of President Clinton’s 6-nation tour, Goree Island was a European slave warehouse and trading post as well as a military fortress. It was there that the slave ships docked and people from many parts of Africa were taken across the Atlantic, never to see home or family again.

Guests:

  • Richard Harrison, author of ??Goree Island: Island of No Return: Saga of the Signares, a novel based on the history of Goree Island.
  • Molefi Kete Asante, professor of Africology at Temple University and the founder of the Afrocentric school of thought. He has been to Goree Island more than 15 times.
