HISTORY

Panafest also known as Emancipation is an annual event in Ghana which aims to remind people of the horrors and detriments of the Trans-Atlantic slave trade. Its aim is to bring together people from all over the Diaspora.

In the History of the slave trade, the Gold Coast as Ghana was then known was the transit point for slaves from all over the continent enroute to Europe and the Americas.
This makes Ghana, the place for all Africans who do not know their routes, to at least find out the history of where their ancestors were kept and what they went through that gave them the chance to be where they are now, whether good or bad. Scattered all over Ghana are forts and castles used in the slave trade.
These forts have been preserved just the way they were during the colonial period. This is to make the youth of today have a firsthand feel of history.

HISTORY OF PANAFEST

The main origins of the emancipation drive started back in the 18th century with the emergence of abolition societies and campaigners like Graniville Sharp, William Wilberforce and Thomas Clarkson.
They were successful in their quest as this eventually led to the British who were the leading slave trade nation, abolish the law in 1807. This marked the milestone of the emancipation history.
Emancipation in Ghana started in 1992 as a soul searching journey for Africans in the Diaspora. The aim is to seek the full emancipation of the African continent from any form of slavery, be it physical or intellectual. This is to be done by bringing home Africans all over the world to come back to their roots, and help the continent develop its resources and be self dependent in all it does.
