on 6 march, my camera and i attended ghana’s 55th independence day celebration in the heart of tamale.
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.
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?”
