Preamble

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.

It’s A Movement

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.

The Door of Our Return (The DOOR) is a strong reversal of the “Door of No Return.” The idea of Africans being stolen from Africa over hundreds of years with no hope of returning has endeared an estrangement and has caused great emotional, economic and psychological damage.

Hope, Healing and Restoration

This initiative is about healing, spiritual and economic redemption for Africa and African people.
