🇬🇭 Traveler Story: “When I asked her name, she said — “Mary.”
I held her face and smiled. I hugged her and cried.
My ancestors are here.
My heart is filled with joy.
I am African.
Thank you, Lord.
Thank you Mary. Thank you Sarah. Thank you, Leonzie. Thank you Howard. Thank you Ruth, and Ellen and Junius and Fred and Bertha and Pip. Thank you to my mother, Tywanda. And my biological Mark. And to the one who loves me true Trevor. Thank you to my Aunties and cousins. —
Thank you to those whose names were replaced and or erased. We are still here. Happy. Proud. Brown and black. And bold. And #African. —
Don’t let the personal journey from here to there distract you. I am african, a proud black woman....we all started here with her! When you know from whence you have come, you can grow to new heights.” - @taibeau // Follow Tai’s journey in Ghana for more of an inside view on her personal experience. #travelnoire #yearofreturn at Cape Coast, Ghana
