Artists show their work on Goree Island

Published
Senegal's Goree (GO-RAY) Island was once one of the largest slave-trading centres. From the 15th to the 19th century slaves left the island to start a dangerous journey across the Atlantic Ocean. Every year, tourists flock to learn more about the island's past. But they will also get a chance to see some works of art. Young and old artists use the island's scenic views as inspiration. Their work is exhibited in open air galleries. Here's how one artist is drawing from Goree's (GO-RAY's) history to create his pieces.
