The Mass Return of Africa’s Children
Let the Journey Begin!
8 -23 November 2019
In 1619, the first officially documented group of Africans were brought against their will to America and were sold into servitude as involuntary laborers. This was the beginning of the brutal and demoralizing American Slave Trade that plunged millions of Africans into years of displacement, discrimination, denigration, and social and economic struggle.
400 YEARS LATER AND THE SONS & DAUGHTERS ARE COMING HOME!
This movement represents the journey ahead, the way forward, and a new season of hope, healing and a redefined history.
The year 2019 marks 400 years, and across America and the regions, hundreds of key leaders representing clergy, governments, and, diplomats and other community stakeholders are working together to affect a mass return to Africa in November 2019.
This sojourn to Africa must not be viewed as a tour – a mere routine excursion or a leisure trip to the Motherland. This DOOR initiative, embraced by many African governments and key agencies, is the coordination of a mass journey back to Africa starting November 2019 that will give rise to a decade of return as we organize and mobilize dislocated Africans whose foreparents were taken captive to the Americas hundred of years ago. The plan is for several thousand sojourners to participate in this exodus and this group will represent a bold commitment to bridge the gap between the African diaspora and Africa. This movement will include business, clergy and government leaders, diverse professionals, artist and entertainers, students and other stakeholders who will form alliances and linkages with like-minded counterparts in Africa.
This will ignite a new flame that will help to spark an economic revival in Africa and the global African village
We are going back through the door of our return
