KC Hosts Cape Coast-Ghana Durbar of Chiefs in Historic Enslavement Apology

(Kansas City, MO)
A cultural assemblage is set to converge on Kansas City, as the vision of The United Nations Decade of People of African Descent realizes a significant event, Wednesday, September 28th, 2022.  "It's time to say what needs to be said to all African Diaspora and we must have the conversation and resolve our actions and inactions as rulers of our Kingdoms during the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade which is deeply regretted.", as expressed by Nana Obokese Ampah I, Apagyehen of Asebu Kingdom, Ghana, Founder and President of Obokese University of Excellence.

Supported by the only UNESCO Creative City of Music in the United States-KC, a solemn ceremony will include a pilgrimage to the site of the Quindaro Underground Railroad site in Kansas City, Kansas where dignitaries and 100 delegates from Ghana will gather along with local and national leaders. "It isn't enough to ask others for an apology. We must first forgive ourselves." Said Obokese.

The slave trade regularly used the triangular trade (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triangular_trade) route and its Middle Passage (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Middle_Passage), and existed from the 16th to the 19th centuries.  There were those who were enslaved and transported in the transatlantic slave trade were people from Central (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Middle_Africa) and West Africa (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/West_Africa) that had been sold by other West Africans to Western European slave traders, while others had been captured directly by the slave traders in coastal raids. The highly anticipated ceremony will set the tone for the week as the assembly of over 100 Ghanaian are set to promote unity while bridging an international UNESCO Ghana-UNESCO- Kansas City initiative for a long-lasting fruitful exchange and to foster ongoing trade, tourism and cultural enrichment.
