6 march 1957: independence day

on this day 55 years ago, ghana was liberated from colonial rule. dr. kwame nkrumah began his speech on 6 march 1957, “at long last, the battle has ended! and thus, ghana, your beloved country is free forever!” more than half a century later, i am moved by his words.

happy birthday, layla

on this day, more than two decades ago, mama africa gave birth to a beautiful little girl. mama africa knew that she would be a gift to the world.

“how do i let the human beings know that this girl’s existence will change the world?”
