IN HONOR OF BLACK HISTORY MONTH by Michael Lamptey

Black History Month often highlights and celebrates the achievements of black people worldwide, which is a beautiful thing. 

However, this video, “Elmina Castle Ghana West Africa,” reveals a part of black history rarely told—or brushed over with few details. If you are a history buff or someone in search of historical facts and truth, you will want to watch it to the end. The United Nations have accorded some of these forts and castles world heritage statuses. 

I have had raging arguments on social media with people of color who vehemently deny this part of their history. They say it’s not true and that there is no evidence of it. Yet, here on the west coast of Africa, and in several parts of eastern and central Africa, there is an abundance of proof of the unfathomable cruelty that slavery and colonization inflicted upon Africans.

Warning: You may find parts of this video distressing and even infuriating. However, the intention is to educate and inform, not to arouse vengeance and hate toward any group of people.

HAPPY BLACK HISTORY MONTH!
