Clinton & Slavery

NPR's Charlayne Hunter-Gault reports on President Clinton's visit to Goree (gor-RAY) Island, where for more than five centuries Africans were held in dungeons before being forced to board ships crossing the Atlantic, where they would be sold into slavery. The president's visit to Goree Island's "Slave House" is the last stop on his 12-day, 6-nation African tour before returning to Washington tonight.
