African American Travellers’ Take of a 10-day Trip to Ghana

Share it!

In a research trip prompted by Ghana’s Year of Return, travellers say that the trip helped them to conceptualise slavery differently, and this led them to a deeper understanding of race relations in the United States. For example, one traveller said that prior to visiting Ghana, they felt a “certain anger towards white people”. But visiting Ghana and specifically the Cape Coast dungeon exposed them to learning more about all of the actors in slavery – (white) Europeans and (black) Africans. A traveller said they realised after the trip that roots tourism, if curated well, could be an avenue for cross-racial communication and understanding.
