Steve Harvey and his family visited Elmina castle where the SLAVES were kept for onward transportation to Europe and America etc.
He posted a video of his visit to the castle on his Instagram page and urged his colleague’s black people in the diaspora to visit their ancestral home and have a first-hand experience in the inhumane treatment their forefathers went through before they were sent out of the shores of Ghana and Africa as a whole.
Visit to the Ghana Slave Castles This was real pain I felt going back to Ghana’s slave castles…I could feel my ancestors on me… Powerful beyond words that I can explain. I encourage as many of you as possible to go HOME for your ancestors. Their strength is in each of us and we must honor their ultimate sacrifice in all that we do. #TheYearofTheReturn : @madebycourtney
The ‘Year Of Return’ is a year-long anniversary that seeks to unite black people living elsewhere to come home and experience the rich culture of their ancestors and at the same time use the occasion to reunite with families and love ones.
There are so many activities billed for the year as part of the ‘celebration’.. and more known people have announced their visit to Ghana.
