NAACP Group Arrives In Ghana Exactly 400 Years Since First Slaves Were Brought To U.S.

Drummers, dancers and local residents welcomed the NAACP delegation at Kotoka International Airport, as the group made their long-awaited arrival in Ghana for the Year of Return.

The excitement was palpable as almost 300 African Americans touched down in Accra for an eventful week that is akin to a homecoming.

The group was first welcomed to the Jubilee house – the residence and office to the President of Ghana- for a photo opportunity, before heading to the Accra Visitor Center to meet with representatives from the Ghana Tourism Authority.
