In addition to doing some presidential work, day one of their journey sightseeing and taking in some African history. In addition, the usual parade of local culture and a visit to a school, the President visited Goree Island, known as one of the historic focal points of the African slave trade.┬áIt’s such a momentous occasion, that it prompted FLOTUS to join Instagram.
