Visit Ghana with NAACP

Jamestown to Jamestown
August 18-25, 2019  

Join NAACP leaders, members, and partners for a journey from Jamestown, Virginia to Jamestown, Accra - Ghana, West Africa to commemorate the Year of Return. This once-in-a-lifetime trip will actualize the healing and collective unity so many generations have worked to achieve in ways which bring power to our communities in America, Africa, and throughout our Diaspora.

We’ll start with a Prayer Vigil at the Jamestown Settlement. And over the next week, we’ll take part in an ancestral healing ceremony at the ocean, attend a critical business and development summit, participate in an African Ancestry reveal at the Door of No Return and visit Assin Manso Last Bath Slave River, where enslaved Africans had their last bath before being shipped to the western world never to be returned. 

  • Special visit to the National Museum of African American History and Culture designed by Ghanaian architect Sir David Adjaye on the National Mall before departing to Ghana.
  • Welcome by local chiefs, politicians, community leaders and the traditional council of Jamestown, Accra, Ghana.
  • Workshops from leaders about business, development, and investment in Ghana. 
  • Tour of the Cape Coast Castle slave dungeons, and the West African Heritage Museum.
  • Tour of W.E.B. DuBois Center and other key museums and monuments in Ghana. 

Plan to join us on this deeply powerful and moving journey.
