While in Ghana Nancy Pelosi will lead the congressional delegation to the Cape Coast and Elmina Castles and the “Door of No Return” to participate in the Year of Return activities.
The Year of Return activity is offering Africans in the Diaspora the chance to return to the continent and reconnect, 400 years after the first set of slaves left the shores of Africa to the USA.
Pelosi will also address Ghana’s parliament on Wednesday, becoming the first US speaker to do so.
She said “It is a special honor to be the first U.S. Speaker of the House to address the illustrious Parliament of Ghana, as we build on the partnership between our nations.”
