Abstract : Ouidah’s “Slave Route” is a well-visited memorial dedicated to the Atlantic slave trade. In order to respond to an audience seeking information, certain inhabitants began to offer commentary on the visits, gradually creating a “body of guides.” Initially informal, this practice was eventually regulated by the city council in 2007. This article explores the way in which some guides use “narrative strategies” to misappropriate the official story and introduce individual memories.
