Washington, DC — Nearly four hundred years ago the first enslaved Africans were sold to America, losing much of their rich African heritage. This August, AfricanAncestry.com will correct history for many African Americans in an historic ancestral Reveal hosted on African soil. The event takes place in Accra, Ghana, and is a part of the NAACP’s Jamestown to Jamestown event in partnership with Ghana’s Year of Return 2019.

With dozens from across the U.S. already registered to take part, the Reveal ceremony is open to anyone interested in joining the transformative journey at Jamestown2Jamestown.com.

“I can think of only one thing as epic as learning your African roots and that’s learning your African roots while in AFRICA,” said AfricanAncestry.com President and Co-founder Dr. Gina Paige. “During this significant time in American history, we are also focused on Africa before America because our heritage is much more than 400 years.”

Jamestown to Jamestown starts August 18 in Washington, DC, travels to Jamestown, Va. and back to DC by bus and culminates in Ghana on August 25. The special delegation of dignitaries, NAACP leadership and members, partners and the African American community at large will take part in a mix of reflection and healing events along the way including the seven- to 10-day chartered trip to Ghana to take part in Ghana’s Year of Return 2019 events.

Highlights include:
• AfricanAncestry.com Reveal of trip participants including NAACP President & CEO Derrick Johnson at the Wall of No Return in Cape Coast Castle Dungeon
• Business, Investment & Development Summit
• Akwasidae Festival at Manhyia Palace in Kumasi
• Visit www.Jamestown2Jamestown.com for the full itinerary

Special tour packages to include the AfricanAncestry.com Reveal are available to the public at www.Jamestown2Jamestown.com, including full itinerary and payment schedules. The deadline for confirming packages is June 30.
