Stand Up for What's Right

Standing at the Door of No Return at the site on Senegal's Goree Island that once housed slaves, Obama reflected on the importance of fighting for human rights. "It’s always powerful for me to visit countries outside of the United States generally, but obviously for an African-American, and an African-American president to be able to visit this site I think gives me even greater motivation in terms of the defense of human rights around the world," he said.
