Many of our ancestors came from what is NOW called Ghana the gateway entrance to Africa, distance in driving but our ancestors walked to the coast….Guinea is 29 hours and 23 minutes away from Ghana, Burkina Faso is 1 hour and 11 minutes away from Ghana, Mali is 23-26 hours away from Ghana, Nigeria is 31 hours away from Ghana, Cote d’lvoire which is aka the ivory coast is 14 hours and 7 minutes away from Ghana, Senegal is 40 hrs and 37 minutes away from Ghana, Liberia is 22 hours away from Ghana and 53 minutes, Benin City is 22 hours and 28 minutes from Ghana. The famous second line dance in New Orleans comes from Cote d’lvoire named the Zaouli. All our ancestors that was captured as prisoners for slavery were held in the Cape Coast Dungeons which is Cape Coast Ghana exited that coast line to journey to Europe, Caribbeans, and Haiti, they were dropped off at the port in Florida and transported to New Orleans which was the main port for selling, trading and where many lived with their owners and thereafter slavery ended. Some History stated The French was it’s own Black Empire within Africa. New Orleans is filled with our West Africa Ancestry History that is fading away because it is not being taught in the schools and the current generation have little to no knowledge of their West Africa ancestry history. Our organization is celebrating to keep our ancestral history alive and correctly educate the present and forthcoming generations.

Nearly 13 million African people were kidnapped and trafficked across the Atlantic to the Americas, byway of the British, French, and Spanish colonies [the French and Spanish are a mixture of dark skinned and light skinned people] that would later comprise the United States. Two million people died during the barbaric Middle Passage. All origins directs back to an area in Africa. You may not have been born directly in Africa but you definitely have an ancestor that came from the Continent of Africa.
