This is the Door of no return in the Elmina Dungeon (i refuse to call it a castle).. This was the last door our ancestors took, to be shipped away from their countries, families and loved ones! The year of return marks the 400th year the first ship of African Slaves left the shores of Africa!!.. #unfiltered #yearofreturn #rolandsmartinghana #godboxtours #wearefamily
