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
