Information Session for the Atlantic Slave Trade Ghana Mosaic

February 27, 2024

This session is for students who are interested in the two course Atlantic Slave Trade Ghana Mosaic beginning in Fall 2024, a research trip to Ghana in January 2025.  

The Mosaic will examine how the Atlantic Slave Trade is taught and memorialized in the United States and Ghana. The fieldwork in Ghana will focus on visiting the historically significant former slave forts Elmina and Cape Coast. Students will tour the two sites, evaluate exhibits, and meet with tour guides. Students will also meet with and interview Ghanaian educators and scholars to learn how the Atlantic Slave Trade is taught in Ghanaian schools and presented at historical sites of memory. The culminating project will be the completion of lesson plans.
