Podcast,

The Take talks to two women about their decision to leave the United States and the United Kingdom to settle permanently in Ghana and The Gambia.

Citing racism and a desire to belong, Americans and Britons of African descent are moving from the West to the African continent. This is part of a pan-African campaign to encourage repatriation and investment in tourism to Africa, and it’s a trend that culminated in 2019 with Ghana’s Year of Return, which marked 400 years since the first slaves from Africa were brought to the Americas. We talk to two women about their decision to leave the US and UK to settle permanently in Ghana and The Gambia.

In this episode:

Muhammida El Muhajir, resident of Ghana since 2014; Juliette Ryan, co-founder of the Council of African Descendants in The Gambia, and host of Bla Xit on YouTube.
