I don’t even know where to start with this one. First off, how do slave trade and theme park even end up in the same sentence? Secondly, where exactly do the Jackson 5 fit into this equation? Thirdly, not that things aren’t weird enough, did I mention that the creator of the Power Rangers is in on this as well? It’s very hard for me to take this seriously, but apparently Marlon Jackson is all gung ho for it…
“The Jackson Family had been looking for a place to site their memorabilia collection for some time,” says Gary Loster, a former mayor of Saginaw, Michigan, and chief executive of The Motherland Group.
“We visited the site of the slave port in Badagry and Marlon turned to me and said: ‘Let’s put it here, this is right’.
“It’s such an emotional place, and I think we all felt that it was the right place to have the Jackson family memorial.”
Of course, the only logical place for a Jackson 5 memorial would be at the site where more than half a million slaves were taken from their country…what I was thinking? Read the full article from BBC News, just amazing.
