Apologies, Plaques, and Reflections at Elmina Castle

The “Cell of No Return” or “Condemned Cell” held male slaves who resisted or attempted to escape. It was a place of harsh punishment and starvation, leading to the deaths of many slaves. The plaque mentioned commemorates a ceremony during Ghana’s “Year of Return” in 2019, where African-Americans visited Elmina Castle to honor their ancestors and their resilience.
