Ghana – Origins, Scatterings and Renaissance
Commemorating 60 Years of Independence
African Remembrance Day (ARD) 2017 celebrates
60 years of Ghana’s Independence.
Sixty years ago, Ghana became the first African country, south of the Sahara, to recover its independence after years at the centre of the trade in enslaved Africans, and under the
British colonial yoke.
ARD was established to commemorate and remember the millions of African men, women and children who perished in the Middle Passage and plantations of the America’s; those on the African continent; and those in the Middle and Far East.
