There have been open discussions within my community about reconnecting with our ancestry. And I came across a project/movement that is making this a reality.
Black Star Repatriation & Pan-African Community
Founded by Bomani Tyehimba, The Black Star Repatriation & Pan-African Community is a building project located in Gyaahadze, Ghana. This community will serve as a place where Africans throughout the Diaspora can live in an African-centered environment and build amongst the land of our ancestors. The investment includes full rites of passage for those who want to integrate into Ghanaian society; this includes languages, culture, and customs workshops. And they hope to connect the skills and resources of Africans in the Diaspora with projects, investment opportunities, and like-minded Africans on the continent.
Here’s an overview of the project layout:
The property is 15 acres and has a total of 60 plots. 1 to 50 are 80×100 plots to build residential homes, and 10 plots in the front are for the security post, business account, community center, and park.
Until Next Time…
