"Better Minds, Better Future"

WHO SAID “YOU CAN’T GO HOME AGAIN?”

Cleve1I just returned to the U.S., August 5th, after conducting my 21st visit to Africa, the Motherland.

During the twenty-one tours, I have escorted participants to such places in Africa as Egypt,Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban, Pretoria and Soweto (all in South Africa), Benin, Togo,Senegal, The Gambia, and Ghana.

Regardless of the place visited, I always experience a feeling “deep inside”, that I’m returning home again!! I will never get tired of seeing the outstretched arms, smiling faces, and warm expressions of greetings each time I arrive. Even without their saying a word, I can hear in my heart the loud sound of “Welcome Home My Brother.”

My most recent tour to Ghana really drove this point home because of my participation in the PANAFEST celebration. The PANAFEST celebration occurs every two years in Ghana and it’s a time when Africans throughout the diaspora return to Ghana and reunite with the brothers and sisters there to remember the past, celebrate the present and commit to developing a prosperous future.

The week-long celebration consists of strategic planning, dancing, drumming, singing, bonding, remembering the Ancestors and breaking bread together. It’s definitely a time when one can truly say “I feel at home again.” I know, without a doubt, that Dr. King would readily place his “stamp of approval’ on events such as this.
