Recent Ghanaian history is dominated by the Ashanti Empire. They were perhaps the single most notorious black enslaver of fellow blacks. Even “America’s leading black intellectual” Henry Louis Gates put them at number one on his list of slave trading Kingdoms. Despite this, American blacks romanticize Ghana and the Ashanti. However, there appear to be no hard feelings among American blacks. Recently the Congressional Black Caucus used Ashanti inspired clothing accessories to protest Donald Trump at the SOTU.
Now, those who sold blacks into the trans-Atlantic slave trade, are begging them to come back. Thousands have already made the move. It all started with the founding of modern Ghana. Prime Minister Kwame Nkrumah was a pan-Africanist who was educated in London and Philadelphia. Under his rule, Ghana gained independence from Britain. He wanted Ghana to be a pan-African ethnostate that would serve as the gateway for blacks in the Western Hemisphere to return to Africa.
W.E.B. DuBois, the first black man to serve on the NAACP Board of Directors, moved to Ghana as fast as he could get a passport.
Al-Jazeera just profiled Muhammida el-Muhajir who made the move to Ghana. She always felt like an “outsider” in the United States that just “couldn’t win” in a white man’s world. Muhammida lived in Philadelphia and New York City but says that she has never been happier since moving to the black ethnostate of Ghana.
Black American have many options. Senegal, Namibia, Ethiopia, and others are all very welcoming of American blacks. Many Africans have grown up watching the Cosby show and listening to African-American singers. They are excited to welcome African-Americans.
Reasons to move to Ghana:
- Ghana is black ethnostate free of interference by the white man. Ghana was specifically intended to be a pan-African ethnostate when it gained independence from Britain. American blacks who live in Ghana say they are finally free to be themselves and not worry about discrimination at the hands of the white man.
