Our first stop will be at Albreda, where you will see the freedom flag pole and also visit the slave museum. The essence of stopping here, is to explain how the freedom flagpole came into being, which is nowadays one of our national monuments since 1970. From here we proceed into Juffureh, which is the village of the famous slave who was forced into slavery in the mid-seventeenth century; Kunta Kinteh.
