As people from the diaspora who visited Ghana to mark the ''Year of Return'' depart to their various countries, some individuals of African descent have shared their pleasant experiences of re-connecting with the continent.

A young student of Haitian-Sudanese descent who came into the country through an initiative organized for undergraduates to experience Ghana during this period of The Year of Return, sat in an interview to share her experience.

She revealed that she has never been to the continent and felt disconnected to Africa.

The ''Year of Return, Ghana 2019'', a major landmark spiritual and birth-right journey inviting the Global African family, home and abroad, to mark 400 years of the arrival of the first enslaved Africans in Jamestown, Virginia, has provided people of African descent an opportunity to experience and re-connect with the continent.

And as they leave Ghana, they would have memories of the journey and experience on their hearts and maintain their connection with Africa, where their ancestors called home.

In a related story, some 250 African-Americans gathered at the Cape Coast Castle, Ghana, to mark the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the first ship of enslaved Africans to English North America in 1619.

While this was ongoing, tens and thousands of African-Americans had assembled at the Chesapeake Bay in Hampton, Virginia, to also mark the same activity.

Here at the Cape Coast Castle, one of nearly 40 slave castles built in the Gold Coast, now Ghana, more than 70 families discovered their family tree during the African Ancestry DNA disclosure which is possibly the largest ever in the continent.
