The Gambia is a river in Western Africa. It ends at the Atlantic Ocean. The country "The Gambia" is entirely enclosed in Senegal. The Gambia was infamous for its role in the Atlantic Slave Trade; the American miniseries Roots was based on Alex Haley's ancestor Kunta Kinte, who was taken captive in The Gambia, and then shipped in cramped quarters to America.
