"We learn slavery at school. We know what happened, so we don't forget, we own it", reflects Ina Makosi, a Senegalese photographer who researches the impact of the slave trade in Africa on today's urban culture and youth. For her research, Ina Thiam (her real name) regularly visits the Island of Gorée to find traces of history. For centuries, the Island of Gorée was a port of departure for the African slave trade. It is now preserved as a UNESCO World Heritage site. We follow Ina as she wanders between the historic island and Dakar's suburbs where she meets with iconic hip hop musicians from West Africa who act as youth influencers and guides.
