Keeping the "African Spirit" alive in the Arts
Some of the places that we'll visit
"Point of No Return" Badagry, Lagos
The Point of No Return in Badagry, Lagos is a historical landmark that was once a slave trade route. It marks the spot where African slaves were shipped off to the Americas during the transatlantic slave trade.
The potion that slaves were forced to drink before crossing the Atlantic was meant to erase their memories and break their spirits, allowing them to be easily controlled by their captors. This cruel practice robbed these individuals of their identities and cultural heritage, making it difficult for them to reclaim their lives and reconnect with their families and communities. The Point of No Return and the memory-erasing potion are powerful symbols of the inhumanity of slavery and the importance of remembering and honoring the experiences of those who suffered under it.
Today, the site serves as a memorial to the victims of slavery and a reminder of the atrocities of the past. Visitors can explore the museum, view artifacts and learn about the history of the slave trade in Nigeria. It's a must-see for anyone interested in African history and culture.
