Barack Obama heads to Africa for his first extended trip to the continent on a tour of three democratic nations that will offer a mix of cultural tourism and diplomacy. After touching down in Senegal, the United States' first black president will visit the Maison des Esclaves (House of Slaves) on the island of Goree. Spectators gathered to watch city officials, archivists, and volunteers take down the temporary memorial of the Boston Marathon bombings. The crew placed the items into boxes that will be moved to the City of Boston Archives. City officials decided last week that the time had come to remove the makeshift memorial.
