'Year of return': Hundreds of African-Americans resettle in Ghana

Video Archive

Ghana was one of the main West African departure points for the transatlantic slave trade.

The government has launched a campaign to reach out to the descendants of those Africans who were forcibly removed from their homelands.

It has dubbed 2019 the "Year of Return".

Several hundred people have already put down roots in Ghana, many of them African-Americans.

The programme is prepared by Patrick Lovett and James Vasina.
