The TOWER OF RETURN is a concept of a monument that was conceived, contributed and collaborated by His Excellency, Nana Kweku Egyir Gyepi III. The dream of His Excellency Nana Kweku Egyir Gyepi, III is to re-tie Africans all over the world. He has proposed the building of TOWER OF RETURN in Cape Coast, Ghana, West Africa.
The TOWER OF RETURN will be a place where one can get answers to their questions. For example, one of the many answers will address where slaves were captured, i.e., what land, Nation and linguistic group they were taken from prior to becoming victims of the God awful holocaust. Answers to Centuries of nightmares, mentally befuddle and spiritually stifling; human destroying situations, conditions and circumstances, which has befallen hundreds of millions of nameless African people! Something had to emerge! Something had to come into being that would symbolize the unrequited yearning and secret inner burning of hundreds of millions of African men, women and children. This something, or this thing, needed to, had to be addressed. With this in mind, the Tower is to focus on those deep divine secret hopes, dreams and visions to one-day return to the Continent of Africa for renewal, rejuvenation and spiritual elevation Her displaced people!
This TOWER OF RETURN will be a monument to our ancestors who were captured and will acknowledge their descendants who still reside in exile of North America, South America and the Caribbean. This Project, invites cooperation, invites gendering respect for a race of people, for the first time in the History a tribute to our people whose incredible story of survival must not be ignored! This epic story defies belief, yet it is one that must not end in exile but in the ‘return’! Hence the name TOWER OF RETURN.

The TOWER OF RETURN symbolizes and equates to Africans a sense of global and universal holiness and wholeness OF AN ENTIRE RACE OF AFRICAN people. It will become the archive of lost histories, the vaults of historical treasury of African people from all lands around the World. The Tower will stand as a living testimony that houses the aspirations of a people whose inspiration will pierce the universe!—A holy place where knowledge will reign supreme.
The structure of the TOWER OF RETURN will rise to the majestic height of seven hundred and seventy seven feet, overseeing a historical library containing books, papers, magazines, films, newspapers, articles and a collection of information from, by and about Africans throughout the world. These articles of information will tell of incredible and unbelievable struggles that transpired during their struggles to redeem themselves from extinction for many centuries. The Tower will house information cataloging inventions, the development of the arts, sciences, literature, agriculture, medicine, music, sculpturing, and such information from all lands in which African culture expressed itself in a countless myriad of ways and manners that forged new histories of the triumphantly human spirit.
The TOWER OF RETURN will have integrated into its complex metropolis a hotel complex that will accommodate at any given time fifty thousand visitors in the most modern and most advanced accommodations as compared to anywhere in the world.
Standing separate and rising grandiosely in all its splendor and wondrous majestic African magnificent will stand “THE TOWER” reminding us that we are one people, despite our geography! It will contain the gold room where initiations will take place during high holy ceremonies when Africans from all parts of the world will be knighted, enshrined, titled and charged with authority over sensitive segments by which their nation’s interest will deeply depend.
