Man that is scary to know relatives went through there. Very just idk what to say.
I agree just the thought of seeing all of that water and being chained to hundreds or thousands of people...It is something that can't be put into words
Just think how sinister the pricks who kidnapped them and sold them off had to be. How can humans do that to other humans? It just doesn't make sense. Slavery was bad enough but atleast some of the owners treated them well and appreciated them. The pricks who sent them through that door were the real criminals. Chilling photo.
