For those people who want to find out more about the Diaspora, Ghana is  a natural choice to spearhead the research into the slave trade and tell the real story of what happened.

There are many well preserved Slave Forts, Castles and trade posts that were used in the transportation of the slaves still existing in Ghana.

 

Ghana today is a beacon in Africa of good governance: Ghana is the example of the capacity of the African to manage his/her own affairs in a decent, humane, disciplined and respected manner.

Ghana has struggled and continues to struggle for the full emancipation and dignity of the African peoples.

. The Black Star of Africa inspired and drew inspiration from the fight for the full emancipation of Africans in the Americas, especially the Civil Rights struggle in the US in the 1950s and 60s.

Dr. Martin Luther King attended Ghana’s Independence Day, March 6th, 1957, and made no secret of its impact on him.

 

It is in Ghana that the remains of the late W.E.B. Dubois and George Padmore are interred.
