Little Rock, AR -- A Black-owned travel agency called Sisters and Suitcases has announced that it is offering a once in a life-time opportunity for female travelers to experience the "Year of Return" in Ghana. The trip will commemorate the 400th year anniversary of the first enslaved Africans arrival to English Colonial America from Ghana in 1619. The trip will be led by the company owner, Tamaya Walker McClendon, August 9-15, 2019 or August 22-28, 2019.

"The Year of Return is the commemoration of the diaspora's return to the continent and the opportunity for women of all backgrounds to experience Accra and how Pan-Africanism is a true part of Ghanaian culture," Walker McClendon said. "People have come to have a negative connotation of Africa. I want to unlock this hidden gem and allow women to experience Ghana and have a taste of Africa they have never seen before -- breathtaking views, loving people, delicious cuisine, cool places filled with lots culture, music and so much more."

Ladies embarking on this journey will immerse themselves in Ghanaian culture by exploring Jamestown and High Street through the beginning of Accra, visit design houses, take part in part in cooking lessons and Batik making as well as enjoy high life music and special events such as the Chale Wote Festival. They will also get the chance to participate in a naming ceremony, explore the heart of the ancient pre-colonial Ashanti Kingdom in Kumasi and hike through Kakum National Park. The highlight of this adventure will be a visit to Elmina and Cape Coast Slave Dungeons-two important reminders of the Transatlantic Slave Trade and the Door of No Return.

The cost of the trip starts at $2,897.00 for double occupancy.
