Episcopal Presiding Bishop Michael Curry led a pilgrimage to Ghana last month to visit historic sites used in the slave trade and The Episcopal Church’s efforts through its Relief and Development fund to build up the local economy. Above, the PB and Massachusetts Suffragan Bishop Gayle Harris take a look at one of the European “castles” which lined the coast for centuries to serve the slave trade’s Middle Passage. Human beings were kidnapped in the countryside, taken to camps, then marched to the sea to be loaded onto ships destined for the Southern U.S. and Caribbean islands.
