Historically, the Gold Coast of Ghana was known for the trade of Gold, and later slaves. The focus of this website will be to look at the present day Gold coast specifically as a fishing village, a tourist attraction and the culture along the coast itself.
Cape Coast is located in the central region of Ghana along the Gulf of Guinea. Today it is comprised of the largest fishing market in Ghana where there is a clear division of labor as well as a routine daily life. The coast is also the home of Elmina and Cape Coast slave castles which show the history of the Trans-Atlantic slave trade. Lastly, the coast is comprised of a culture which has specific traditions, a reliance on sales and a diverse religion. All of this can be found throughout our website that was created by Ben Larson a politcal science major, Jill Kubichan a sociology and womens studies major, Regis Rollins a buisness economics major, Leah Gregory a sociology major, and Harrison Black a history major.
