FYI: typo on slavery here… Only 300 slaves went through the island??
yes, through THIS island relatively few slaves were processed or transported. They mostly went through other ones but most other places have destroyed all evidence so this has become more of a symbolic place. The more important centres for the slave trade from Senegal were north, at Saint-Louis or to the south in the Gambia, at the mouths of major rivers for trade.
