Today’s modern slaves are not in chains but in debt, the latter which is not easily visible unlike back in the day slavery.

A Ghanian artist has made a sculpture in remembrance of the bad old day slavery. A sign of warning to many countries in Africa – not to go into any kind of slavery.

Ghanaian artist Kwame Atoko-Bamfo created several sculptures in a lake to remember our ancestors who drowned as they were transported through the Atlantic Sea during slavery. #ifayemiawotunde Credit: Owula
