ABOUT BTR

Welcome to Beyond The Return: Reclaiming the African Diaspora!

Beyond The Return: Reclaiming the African Diaspora! is an initiative birthed after the Year of Return (2019) ended and the question arose as to where do we go after December 31, 2019 and what do we do. Nana Kwame Sam I (LaMont “Montee” Evans), an African American living in Atlanta, Georgia who was Coronated a Division Chief May 4, 2019 and Francis Osei Sarpong, a Ghanaian came up with the idea to create an initiative that would assist African Americans especially and others throughout the African Diaspora come home and connect. 

Our mission is to provide quality Ghanaian tour experiences that raise awareness about the value of Ghanaian people, culture, customs and values. Our purpose is to ensure all persons trusting our company to assist them in navigating the country are provided excellent service and experiences. We believe that once individuals are able to see the people, experience the culture and safety, and engage conversationally and socially with Ghanaian people – the magic will unfold.

There are 16 Regions in Ghana with more than 20 tourist sites to visit, we will provide one day experiences to an entire 10-14 day experience. There are several key places we believe African Americans should visit. The Cape Coast Castle and Elmina Castle are two places individuals should definitely visit to gain an understanding of the Transatlantic Slave Trade. It has been noted that out of the 50 castles that housed slaves during this era, 30 of them were in Ghana. Many of them have been torn down or repurposed, but these two remain. The Dr. Kwame Nkrumah Museum is another must on your list of places to visit, Ghana was the first Sub-Saharan country to declare its independence, led by Nkrumah in 1957. 

We could go on and on about where to go and what to do, but we want you to get to Ghana and explore the land. And, as you explore, we ask that you consider building a second home here, invest or open your business here, and donate to assist in the development of people and places. Our sister project, iPromisedGhana provides an overview of initiatives we are working on.
