  • Recently many African Americans, famous and non famous have been participating in “The Year Of Return” by going to Ghana, Africa as a return to the land that our ancestors never got to return to. But we, as their descendants can. Steve Harvey, Danny Glover, Colin Kaepernick and many others have been sharing their experiences-as well. This is our visit to Elmina Castle and it was eye opening and life changing. This is the full tour so listen carefully to the tour guide and take in all that is Elmina Castle. Nothing beats actually being there but for those who can’t make the journey let this video educate and motivate you to dig deeper into history and discover more about our past because it affects our future. Thanks for watching and please share, share, share. I know it’s a longer video but even if you have to watch half now and half later, it’s worth it. God bless and enjoy!

    Thank you for taking and posting such an excellent emotionally heartbreaking video. I learned alot. There is so much history that is just purposefully neglected from being told, im thankful to always learn more despite how devastating. Knowledge is power!

    All because of breaking Gods laws, as written in Deuteronomy 28. I just wonder how the next story will be narrated? Smh.

    This is hard to watch especially since our people have not yet been repaired no one should have ever been given reparations before the Africans no one.

      KING RAY-X it’s very hard to hear of the ruthless and heartless cruelty inflicted on our ancestors for hundreds of year. I see why they don’t teach this in American schools.

    At 21:00 he talks about how Christianity and Islam are the religions of our spiritual destruction. He is so right. When I say this to some Africans they get offended. They even condemn me when I tell them I'm an atheist. Vodun is one version of African spirituality; Ife is another. Throw away those destructive religions--Christianity and Islam.
    Great video. Thank you.

      I am from the Kpelle ethnic group from Bong county, Liberia. The Kpelle people are also found in Guinea. I believe more in ancestral worship than anything. Any religion that was imported into Africa is foreign so I reject it. Christianity and Islam are foreign to me. It does not matter how African practitioners use them or how the Europeans and Arabs use them.
      I know Europeans used them for nefarious practices (to justify slavery). Islam (the Arab religion) was also used to dominate Africans in Africa (the Arab slave trade).

      The Arabs and Europeans can keep their religions.

      @Dakanu The big problem is they were practicing selective Christianity, the kind which justified the white-mans actions however distasteful and appalling and condemned everyone else's. That is not Christianity but a man made religion

      Thanks again for posting such an educational video. I sharing my friends.

    • Angela Anagho TV
      Angela Anagho TV  Month ago +1

      Dakanu Thank you so much for replying and I certainly understand where you are coming from. And yes, the women being put on display just to be washed in public and then taken to be raped is just horrendous. Thanks again for your support on my channel. I don’t take it for granted.

    • Dakanu

      I was only repeating what the tour guide stated. It was not my intent to offend you. For the record, I grew up in a Christian household in Liberia and here in the U.S., and I still have Christian and Muslim friends. It wasn't until I started reading the history of slavery and Colonialism, that's when I questioned our religious beliefs (Christianity and Islam).
      Your video is educational in the sense that it gives viewers details of what made Europeans successful --taking advantage of the divisions created by Africans themselves.
      Another thing that bothered me but I didn't comment on was the fact that women were treated as objects, before being put on display, then selected to be raped. All perpetuated by people who believed in a Christian God.

  • Father ADAMAH LightofYAHAWASHI

    At night the captain & solders could hear the cryin of rape, the torture of screaming and the songs from our Hebrew Israelites ancestry that were in captivity...

    I personally think that these places should be dismantled, and that nothing should stand their, but a Planck instituting that African die ,and or were taken into slavery here.

    • Angela Anagho TV
      Angela Anagho TV  Month ago +2

      +Luann H If this place was destroyed then no one would visit a empty plot of land and no one would know what took place here. Not sure that destroying history is best.

    Christianity was spread separately by missionaries and not a means to influence slavery. Traditional Religion isn't a good religion because GOD is a jealous GOD

      Alexander Anderson I never knew you can put a comment like this, if the narrator didn’t say this, lemme add this to you.” The castle is made of three sections, the upper part was for the governors the middle part is for the missionaries and the lower part is for slaves...

    Big important video🙂"Walking in the castle." 600 male, 400 female. No toilets and poison from the other part of the castle. The experiment. History lesson speech from tour guide. Great captions because the guide has a strong accent that sometimes is difficult for me to follow. Great shot of the door before the ships. King got tricked. New guide. Governor's Mess. Gift shop. Watched whole thing.
    Great job. Must have taken you many hours to make. Since we have chatted over the past year it felt more personal. Liked of course👍👍👍👍👍👍

    • Angela Anagho TV
      Angela Anagho TV  Month ago +1

      Thanks my friend. I’m hoping to add captions to the whole thing but of course that takes time and yes, this took hours of editing over 2 days. Toughest one yet. Looking forward to your next video!

    they are really going to have to try to do something about those shops and sellers. they dont get it. many of them dont even understand what the dungeon means. someone in government should have understood after all these decades that a place where people were beaten and killed is not the place to be trying to selling souveniers in such a hardway. especially the boys boys , that hang out outside the buidling. the moment a person gets out of the car, they come and ask you whats your name blah blah , and then try to get you to buy something, you go in and come back and then they have some seashells or something with your name engrained and it and want to push you to buy it. they did it to my dad , and the next year when i wsa going our driver told me ahead of time that there are going to be guys at the front trying to sell me stuff and i should ignore them and go straight in.
    i was so disappointed when i saw them do it to steve harvey too when he was there. the governemtn is not doing a good job maintaining some of these facilities. a huge portion of the space leading to the castle should have been sectioned off so once people enter they wont be disturbed.

      Michael Owusu Kyereko I must agree with you. Something should be done. It was one of the worst, scariest and overwhelming moments we had in Ghana.

      @GoldenLion Tv brother i think you misunderstand. i am not against them making a living. but where they are making that living is a problem. and also how. how they bombard peoples car windows , even when the car is moving. in the first place. many of the people at the cape coast castle dont even end up buying the stuff even. and then they also have a store INSIDE the buidling selling similar tourist items.

      blackvolta well I disagree because the majority of people watching will never make it to Ghana and those who do and don’t want to know just won’t watch the video. I watched dozens of videos on Ghana and places there but watching it on the screen and experiencing it are incomparable.

  • Pierre Toussaint
    Pierre Toussaint Month ago +3

    Love y'all but that's a disgrace to our ancestors who were held there to have a hotel and something like that that in a slave dungeon and then they have a nerve to have a church there madness

    • Michele Maddox
      Michele Maddox Month ago +2

      Its a 3 hour drive from Accra to reach El Mina. I did it last week. If one is faced with 6 hrs of driving r.t. and at least 1 1/2 hrs to tour the castle with a guide, and considering the emotional toll on most who experience this- like me, having a hotel there on the ocean to detox and pray is ideal. The church was built by the Portuguese Catholics and placed in the center of one end of the courtyard. The priests would select which women they wanted rinsed off and cleaned before the priests raped them. The church was part of the system of running the activities of the castle and the priests who lived on the premises, performing worship services for the governor, his staff and the merchants who came through, were beneficiaries of the opportunity for daily rape. The hotel is not a disgrace to our ancestors. It provides respite for those who travel across the world to learn and witness the truth of the horrors that happened there. The church was very much a part of the institution of slavery. Read Ebony and Ivy by Steven Wilder and learn how the Catholic bishops and Cardinals who owned slaves used them to build churches in NYC! YOu will also learn how many Ivy League Universities in the U.S. were built to promote a curriculum of Eugenics used to justify slavery. Read. Go to Ghana. Learn the truth. Use this platform to share the truth with respect, knowledge and compassion.
