AFRIKAN WORLDVIEW: ALAVANYO #2
Out of invisible boundaries Africa was needlessly partitioned displacing families and creating an illusion of fragmented and different African people. Till today Africa has been unable to erase these disruptive invisible lines.
During the period of New Imperialism between 1881 and 1914 the scramble for Afrika caused the death and denigration of many Afrikans, holding back growth and destroying numerous African civilizations, mentally erasing and blinding Africans to their immense contributions towards humanity.
Based on what we had in our soil, they called our land the land of gold, Gold Coast. The land colonized by Akwesi Buroni for its natural resources and minerals and after years of continuous resistance and fighting against colonial rule our forefathers and foremothers finally threw off the yoke of British colonial rule. Led by Ɔsagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah a new nation was born; a nation charged to take absolute control of its growth economically, politically and socially.
Those were changing times for Ghana. Through self-discovery our nation was geared up to move forward, breaking the shackles of yesterday.
Where is Afrika today? Who is the Afrikan and what does she stand for? Has Ghana rediscovered itself, have the shackles of yesterday been broken, at last, the shackles of slavery and colonization?
