About This Project

“For almost 150 years, Ghana, on Africa’s west coast, was the center of the British slave trade. Western traders arrived in ships loaded with manufactured goods to barter or trade for people to enslave.”

 

Today, we find that millions of Africans in the diaspora trace their maternal or paternal ancestry to Ghana, or find that their ancestors were brought to Ghana before being shipped from the continent of Africa, making Ghana the last place on the continent that they set foot on before they were enslaved.

 

For my first trip to the continent of Africa, I spent a month in Ghana getting to know the culture, the people, and of course the food. It was an amazing experience and a great introduction to the continent.
