Scattered along the coast of West Africa are old buildings – remains of slave castles from the former slave trade.  The late Reverend Dr. Samuel Berry McKinney, a 40-year pastor of Mt Zion Baptist Church in Seattle’s Central District visited some of the slave castles on a trip with a group of ministers  in the 1970’s.  He reflects on what he saw, and the impact it had on two different groups with KBCS’s Yuko Kodama.
