The year of return was Mad Oh!!! In 2018, Ghana’s President Nana Akufo-Addo declared 2019 as the Year of Return in order to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the arrival of African slaves in America. He asked for Ghanaians in Diaspora to come back home to Ghana. With great array of events like Afronation, The Gold Coast Experience, waakye summit and the arrival of celebrities like Cardi B, Badassboz, Rickross, Jidenna and many more, the 2019 was indeed a great year for Ghana.

Here are some highlights that we are absolutely here for:

We are sharing some of the experiences of visitors and residents of Ghana during the #YearOfReturn This one is a #Repost from blogger @hayet.rida ・・・ I was born and raised in Ghana, and have probably been to the Elmina Slave Castle over 15 times, but to be honest… I didnt fully understand the history of the Slave Trade and what it meant to many. I thought of it more as a place for African Americans to find themselves, but not me. Afterall, I knew where I was from down to the exact house in the exact village. • • • It wasnt until curating the @g2ghana trip that I fully grasped the meaning it had to many, and what my actual role in it could be. This trip is more than just an opportunity to bring folks down to take cute IG photos, but my duty and purpose as a Ghanaian woman to play a small role in welcoming my brothers and sisters back home, and in some weird fashion…reversing the route of the TransAtlantic Slave trade. Join me in welcoming 19 amazing children of the diaspora back home!! 🇬🇭 📷- @kofmotivation #gone2ghana2019 #Ghana #diaspora #Ghanaian #Caribbean #blackpeople #blackhistory #africanhistory #blackexcellence #blackandabroad #ancestors #African #africanamerican #GoBackToAfrica #africatotheworld

This was the deeper meaning of Year of Return. The coming together of our global black family. . . #Repost @windcollective ・・・ We had such a dynamic group for The Year of Return in Ghana. People from the USA that were returning to discover their roots. 2nd Generation Afro-Brits celebrating a culture they know all too well. Caribbean descendants finding similarities and making sense of their origins and even White Europeans not intimidated by blackness but embracing and learning about our culture and our truth. In that sense and more, the Year of Return was super successful. . 📸: @eltonandersonjr . . . . . #windcollective #livelikethewind #westafrica #thisisaccra #ghana #yearofreturn #afropunk #allaboutadventures #kentedesigns #beautifuldestinations #stayandwander #roamtheplanet #raw_melanin #accra #blacktraveljourney #passionpassport #exploretocreate #blacktravelfeed #essencemagazine #wearepangaea #grouptravel #blackfacesindopeplaces #travelnoire #jetblacktravel #melaninjourney #theblacktravelclub #afrodyssee #visitghana . @thisisaccra @afrodyssee @travelnoire @voyaged @afropunk @raw_melanin @theblacktravelclub
