The opening of @theaneked ‘Memory House’ in The Gambia – It’s hard to believe that five years ago that this would have been possible… it was an emotional evening with victims and families of deceased victims of the former 22-year dictatorial regime of Yahya Jammeh.

We are truly humbled to be part of this incredible homage to the victims, resisters, and survivors.
