EBONY Enjoys Ghana’s Art, Music, Food and Culture Scene

In recognition of 400 years since the first documented enslaved Africans left the continent on a Portuguese slave ship and landed in Jamestown, Virginia, EBONY is revisiting our “Year of Return, Ghana 2019” preview trip from December 2018 – January 2019 issue.

EBONY and The Adinkra Group, a cultural resource company, headed to Ghana for a 10-day tour to experience the food, customs, art and culture of the West African country. During their stay, the Ghana Tourism Authority proved to its visitors why the nation is a prime tourist, business and investment destination.

Get a behind-the-scenes look at the trip below.

@ebonymagazine journalist @farsightedgirl – Regrann from @farsightedgirl – I have returned. Back through the door of no return and into the dungeons and holes that caged my ancestors. I cried and cried going through those dark, brutal spaces but my ancestors know I have not forgotten them and will never forget. At the end, I received confirmation that my #ancestors are the #Mandinka people of #Senegal. Being from the land of #griots, Theibu djen and Africa's best #jollof lifted my spirits and made me more concious of the path that the ancestors have laid out for me. #ashe' ✊🏽 🇸🇳🇬🇭 @africanancestry @ebonymagazine @theadinkragroup #ebonytravels #back2africa #roots #moderngriot #ghana #African #africanhistory #neverforget #blackhistory #capecoast #traveldeeper #selfie #travelnoire #photooftheday #igtravel #nomadnesstribe #travel #love #travelphotography #africanpride – #regrann
