The Charlottesville-Winneba Foundation is organizing two trips to Winneba, Ghana for 2020, each limited to 30 travelers. These "Our Roots, Our History" delegations provide a powerful and memorable opportunity to experience the vibrant culture and traditions of Charlottesville's Sister City of Winneba, and to understand the origins and history of the trans-Atlantic slave trade, for which Ghana served as one of the primary transit points.
The trips will each center on one of Winneba's major annual cultural festivals - the Kakamotobi (Fancy Dress) Festival on New Year's Day, and the Aboakyer (Deer-Catching) Festival on the first Saturday in May.
