Ghana to build ‘Wakanda City’ to serve as a pilgrimage for people of African descent

The city of Cape Coast in Ghana’s Central Region is widely known as the nation’s tourism hub and the ‘Makah’ for African Americans. Every year, hundreds of Black people across the world visit the city and other historic slave sites to learn about the trans-Atlantic slave trade.

The region was the hotbed of the slave trade that saw millions of Africans uprooted to the New World. The coastal region has a number of castles and dungeons that were used to keep enslaved men and women for days before they were transported to the Americas to work on various plantations.

The meeting is expected to be a convening of diasporans with skills, technical know-how and capital, who are ready and willing to invest in the Ghanaian economy to support the Ghana Beyond Aid agenda, while re-integrating members of the diaspora into the Ghanaian economy.
