    The Archaeological Institute of American, Houston presents Voyages of the Middle Passage - The Door of No Return, Wednesday, November 17, 2010.  Featuring Dr. Christopher DeCorse, Chair, Anthropology, Maxwell School of Syracuse University.

    Thirty thousand slaves a year passed through the door of no return at Elmina as they started a harrowing journey that would lead to an uncertain life in the Americas. Discover the story of the first European slave castle, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Located in present-day Ghana, Elmina was one of the primary conduits for slaves coming from Africa to America. Its memories still echo today.

    Cosponsored by the Houston Museum of African-American Culture.
