The Bono Manso Slave Market in the Bono East Region was an important landmark in the history of Slave Trade in Ghana. It was the point where slaves from northern Ghana (Salaga, Pikworo etc) were taken for grading and sorting purposes. That is, strong from weak, children from adults etc. The strongest of the captives were selected and sent to the coast for onward sale to the Americas. The weaker ones were left in the town.
This market has to date become an important place for many diasporans to study about the slave trade as well as trace their routes.
At present this ancient slave market has some of the trees to which slaves were tethered while awaiting prospective buyers and their eventual shipment to Europe and the Americas still standing.
