GHANA-US-TOURISM-HISTORY-SLAVERY

A group of African-American tourists hold hands as they enter the ocean in a remembrance ceremony after visiting the "Door of No Return" at the Cape Coast Castle on August 18, 2019. - African-American visitors are flocking to Ghana as it marks the "Year of Return" to remember the 400th anniversary of the first slave ship landing in Virginia. The West African nation is banking on the commemorations to give a major boost to the number of tourist arrivals as it encourages the descendants of slaves to "come home". Cape Coast Castle, 150 kilometres (90 miles) from the capital Accra, is a major magnet for those visiting. The white-washed fort lined with cannons was one of dozens of prisons studding the Atlantic coast where slaves were held before their journey to the New World.
