Back to Africa: Ghanaian Tourism Minister Invites Black Americans to Return “Home”

(The Telegraph) Black Americans of African descent should return to the continent because they are not wanted in the United States, a government minister in Ghana has said.

Barbara Oteng Gyasi, the country’s tourism minister, urged black Americans to return “home” during an emotional ceremony in the Ghanaian capital Accra to mark the death of George Floyd.

“We continue to open out arms and invite all brothers and sisters home,” Ms Oteng Gyasi said.

“Ghana is your home. Africa is your home. We have arms wide open, ready to welcome you home.

“You do not have to stay where you are not wanted forever. You have a choice and Africa is waiting for you.”

Ghana launched a campaign in 2018 to persuade black Americans either to move to the country or to visit it as tourists. 

“The Year of Return” initiative marked the quatercentenary of the first documented shipment of slaves from Africa across the Atlantic to the New World.
