Jubilation in Accra, as Jamestown to Jamestown Participants End Day 5 of the Journey with a Gala

August 23, 2019 / By Vanessa Mbonu

For many Jamestown to Jamestown travelers, their time in Ghana’s capital city came to an end tonight, but the impact of their visit would remain etched into Accra’s memory. The day began with the second part of the business summit and even more city tours.

The group continued to make its way around the city’s most prominent landmarks, taking in the history and culture, and forming deep bonds with each other.

One of the sites toured was of special significance to the NAACP, as it was the home and museum of one of the founders of the NAACP, W.E.B. Du Bois.

The day concluded with a gala fit for Kings and Queens as NAACP Vice-Chair, Karen Boykin-Towns, empowered participants to take the lessons learned in Ghana and use them to continue their activism back home.

Undoubtedly, long-lasting memories were formed, and all found purpose in their journey back to Africa.

The journey continues tomorrow as the delegation heads to the Cape Coast Slave Castles for an African ancestry reveal.
