The “Predator 2” actor’s arrival is part of a delegation of National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) for ‘Jamestown to Jamestown’.

His visit to Ghana comes just some few days after popular American comedian Steve Harvey paid an emotional visit to Ghana.

“Jamestown to Jamestown” is part of activities to organised to mark the Year of Return. 

This year marks exactly 400 years since the first black slaves landed in Jamestown Virginia in the US.

The Jamestown to Jamestown events kickoff August 18 in Washington D.C., where participants will travel via bus to Jamestown, Virginia for a prayer vigil and candle- lighting ceremony marking the African “Maafa”, a term describing the horrific suffering embedded in the past four centuries related to the enslavement process.

Participants will then travel back to DC for a gathering at the National Museum of African American History and Culture (which was designed by Ghanaian architect Sir David Adjaye) prior to departing to Ghana on a direct flight for 7 to 10 days of cultural, spiritual and cathartic experiences designed to connect the present to the African past.
