News: Launch of The Year of Return Ghana 2019 – Sep 29 2018

Shalom, everyone! The following is a video clip of the September 29, 2018 announcement by Ghanaian President Nana Akufo-Addo, of the official launch of the “Year of Return Ghana 2019,” in commemoration of the 400th anniversary of the first arrival of enslaved Africans to the English colonies in the United States of America. This event is being coordinated via a public-private sector partnership with the Ghanaian Tourism Authority. Among the initiatives to be undertaken are simplifying the Ghanaian visa application process, and giving the “right of abode” to the descendants of enslaved Africans in the Americas. The Ghanaian President also commits to African initiative to never allow other peoples with “superior” technologies to ever seize and enslave Africa‘s people ever again. Ghana wants her long-lost children to come home. No doubt, other African nations will follow suit. We in the African Diaspora must heed this call – let’s go home:
