Memorial ACTe

On May 10 2015, the doors to Memorial ACTe were opened in the city of Pointe a Pitre in Guadeloupe. Located at the site of a previous sugar factory, the cultural center is dedicated to the history and memory of the slave trade, documenting its beginnings and present-day repercussions via storytelling, artifacts, artwork from a number of global artisans, reenactments, and various forms of multimedia. It’s an emotional but necessary experience to have while in the land where noteworthy slave revolts took place.
