Obamas at the 'Door of No Return': First Family makes emotional trip to former slaving port in Senegal from where captives were shipped to America - never to see their homeland again
President Obama and his family visited Goree Island outside of Dakar
The island is where ships picked up slaves bound for North America
Hundreds of slaves were kept in tiny cells and chained for up to three months when they waited for their ships to arrive
Obama said it was a reminder for why civil rights need to be protected
Visit came just hours after he blasted his host, the President of Senegal, for the country's laws that criminalize homosexuality
