Ghana calls African Americans to Return Home

24 minutes

As Hans and Robin discussed last week, African Americans are leaving the United States in unprecedented numbers. Some are moving abroad for short stays. Others are moving away permanently. The primary reason for leaving is the unrelenting racism that they face on a daily basis. Where are Black Americans moving to? All over the world! One country that is a major landing point is Ghana. With its historic and cultural connection, Ghana is an attractive destination for African Americans.  Robin and Hans discuss the 2019 "Year of Return" in which the Ghanaian government is opening the door to Black Americans and other Black diasporans to settle in Ghana. It is also helping Black people to get visas, find jobs, and otherwise establish themselves culturally and financially. Join the ETT Team to discuss this modern migration and the opportunities available for African Americans to return to their roots.
