3 Days Special Tour of Ghana

We start the day with Kwame Nkrumah, a monumental figure in African history. Serving as the first President of Ghana post-independence, Nkrumah was a staunch advocate for Pan-African unity. Also, his leadership was instrumental in the establishment of the Organization of African Unity (OAU), fostering cooperation among African nations and leaving an indelible mark on the continent’s journey towards independence.

Moving forward,

we delve into the influential work of W.E.B. Du Bois. An eminent African American sociologist, historian, and civil rights activist, Du Bois co-founded the NAACP and played a central role in the early American civil rights movement. His studies on race relations and dedication to civil rights remain integral to the fight for equality.

Next, we explore Historic Jamestown in Accra, Ghana, a living testament to the interconnected histories of Africa and the Americas. Established in 1607, it signifies the first permanent English settlement in North America. The settlement’s story is one of resilience, from encounters with indigenous peoples to the challenges of colonial life. Today, it stands as an archaeological site, offering profound insights into the early chapters of English colonization.

In the Volta Region of Ghana, the artistry of pot-making thrives alongside the creation of distinctive Cedi beads. Crafted from recycled glass, these beads hold cultural significance and adorn traditional Ghanaian attire. The pot-making centres in the Volta Region are hubs of craftsmanship, producing an array of pottery items, including essential cooking pots. This artistic tradition reflects the rich cultural tapestry of the region, showcasing the enduring legacy of Ghana’s artisanal heritage.
