Steve Harvey in tears while a visiting tour in Ghana

American comedian and TV host, Steve Harvey, was moved to tears on his voyage of the sl*ve trade site in Ghana.

Steve Harvey along with his family visited the Elmina Castle on the Cape Coast, Ghana.
The Harvey family was given a tour through the historical site and briefed on the dark past of the trading post that was erected by the Portuguese in the 1400s.

On his Instagram post he wrote:

This was real pain I felt going back to Ghana’s slave castles…I could feel my ancestors on me… Powerful beyond words that I can explain. I encourage as many of you as possible to go HOME for your ancestors. Their strength is in each of us and we must honor their ultimate sacrifice in all that we do. #TheYearofTheReturn

The Elmina Castle served as a cornerstone in the early European sl*ve trade, and the coldhearted conditions sl*ves were relegated to in those days clearly got to Steve, who had to sit down at one point and take a breather. The Obama family had comparable feelings in 2009 when they made an excursion to the Elmina Castle.
