Abstract

In the final analysis, the program aims to forge a close link between the ethical exigency of preserving the memory of the slave trade, which historians now consider "the biggest single tragedy in the history of man on account of its scope."... The forts and castles on the coast of Ghana, in particular, Cape Coast, Elmina and Tile de Goree on the Senegalese coast, symbolize these memorial sites. And now that they have been placed on the list of UNESCO's world heritage, their preservation, restoration and promotion henceforth forms part of the universal heritage of mankind.
