Kunta Kinteh Island

Gambia
Kunta Kinteh Island, formerly called James Island, is an island in the Gambia River, 30 km from the river mouth. The island and some nearby areas are on the UNESCO World Heritage List because they have important relics of the West African slave trade. In Alex Haley's book and TV series Roots, Kunta Kinteh is brought by slave ship from this island to Maryland.
