- Wanda Tucker, a woman who traces her roots to Angola, has argued that her ancestors were the first to be moved from Africa to England.
- In the absence of materials to back her claim, she believes in her knowledge of her family's history.
- Angola's history has been largely compromised as fires and other forms of destruction have plagued the country.
Wanda Tucker is convinced she is a descendant of the first Africans who were moved from the continent to the English colonies about 400 years ago.
The conviction is akin to a family treasure handed down from generation to generation.
Tucker, has over the years, teamed up with others to grow the idea in spite of missing pieces of evidence in Angola, where she believed she can trace her roots to.

YEN.com.gh understands that records are hardly available to authenticate claims as the stories of people who lived in times past are lost to fires and other forms of destruction.
USAtoday.com reports that burnt churches, unmarked graves and an unconcerned government contributed to the present situation.
Tucker is however certain that her ancestors have called unto her to return to Angola and is therefore in search of answers about her family tree.
Meanwhile, President Akufo-Addo joined the people of Jamestown in Accra to welcome African Americans to Ghana as part of the Year of Return.
YEN.com.gh understands that the group was led by the president of the National Association for the Advancement of Coloured People, Derrick Johnson.
