I Will Never Forget, We Are Because They Were

In honor of Black History Month which begins on February 1st, I wanted to share some of the photographs I took during my visit to Cape Coast in Ghana. I was able to spend some time in a slave castle there that is now a historical site. It was a humbling and horrifying experience, but to stand on those grounds as a free black man was inspiring as well. I will never forget my enslaved ancestors and will not allow America to forget them either. We are because they were.
