Assin Manso Slave River

The Assin Manso slave river was one of the largest markets during the Trans-Atlantic slave trade. It was described as the final link in the slavery route from northern Ghana and was known to have been the largest slave market for the merchants supplying slaves on the forts and castles on the coast.

Assin Manso Ancestral Slave River Park was one of the largest slave markets for gathering people to sell into slavery during the infamous trans-Atlantic slave trade. It is especially worth seeing as a prelude to viewing Cape Coast slave castle since you will be following the route taken by the ancestors of many African Americans.
