Comedian Dave Chapelle is the latest African American celebrity to arrive in Ghana ahead of the inaugural Black Star Line Festival which is being fronted as an event to forge connections between black people around the world.
The week-long event will have panels to discuss various topics and culminate in a concert in Accra’s historic Black Star Square.
“The goal here, [is] to be able to bring our experiences from different parts of the world to one space, and obviously relish and celebrate in our differences and in our similarities, but also to be able to have conversations and figure out where it is that we all meet,” Chance the Rapper, the event’s organiser, told RollingStone magazine last year.
