[{"media":[{"content":"The Year of Return, Ghana 2019 was a historic campaign that marked the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the first enslaved Africans in the English colonies in North America. The campaign was organized by the Government of Ghana and aimed to encourage people of African descent to visit the country and learn more about its rich cultural heritage.\n\nAs part of the Year of Return, a series of events and activities were held throughout the year, including cultural festivals, concerts, and educational workshops. Many celebrities participated in the campaign, including Will Smith, Idris Elba, and Naomi Campbell, who traveled to Ghana to take part in the celebrations.\n\nThe Year of Return not only served as an opportunity to celebrate Ghana's history and culture, but also to promote tourism and economic development in the country. It was a chance for people from around the world to learn more about Ghana and all it has to offer, from its beautiful beaches and natural landscapes to its vibrant art, music, and food.\n\nBut the Year of Return was not just about celebration.
