door of no return

House of Slaves, on the Island of Gorée, off of the city of Dakar. This picture shows the narrow door —aka the Point-of-no-return— out of which slaves were loaded onto Americas-bound ships.

Dear Editor,

A few days ago, my wife and I ran into a few good friends over dinner and entertainment by great local musicians. They had recently returned from Africa, where they visited “The Door of No Return” in Ghana.
