The “Year of Return, Ghana 2019” is a major landmark spiritual and birth-right journey inviting the Global African family, home and abroad, to mark 400 years of the arrival of the first enslaved Africans in Jamestown, Virginia. The arrival of enslaved Africans marked a sordid and sad period when our kith and kin were forcefully taken away from Africa into years of deprivation, humiliation and torture. While August 2019 marks 400 years since enslaved Africans arrived in the United States, “The Year of Return, Ghana 2019” celebrates the cumulative resilience of all the victims of the Trans Atlantic slave Trade who were scattered and displaced through the world in North America, South America, the Caribbean, Europe and Asia
There will be activities throughout the year to mark this remarkable homecoming, one of these events is the PANAFEST 2019, which is an event dedicated to the African dance, music and other performing arts. Also known as the ‘Pan-African Historical Theatre Festival’, Panfest is a cultural event that aims and endeavours towards the enhancement of the ideals of Pan-Africanism and the development of the African continent. It is a biennial festival and is observed every two years to celebrate the people of African descent as well as all persons committed to the well being of Africans on the continent and in the global arena, Afrochella, the festival showcases the vibrant culture of Africa with fashion, art installations and music. Relax and dance your heart out on Accra’s beautiful
beaches while creating the experience of a lifetime with new friends.
