Ghanaian Culture: Celebrating 55 Years of
Black History Month in the United Kingdom begins from Monday, 1st October 2012, and ends Wednesday, 31 October 2012.
Our Year was 57, Not a Mystery!
Embrace with heart, those who left MARKS
Never forget, why we’re still LARGE.
Dr Nkrumah. Gold Coast Leader,
A Minster, A Lecturer, BEYOND A Preacher
The Blood of Our Land, Suffered To STAND
From Stripped To TAKEN
Families AWAKEN, to see the SHAKEN
BRITS, for BLAMING
ALL too SHAMING
Mothers, fathers, from sisters to brothers,
Divided Apart, SHIPPED AFAR
OUR EMPIRE is enriched with ECHOES of SORROWS
Yaa Asantewaa, FEMALE WARRIOR, Intelligent LEADER
She Was a Believer
She Guarded our STOOL,
YOU Thought we Were FOOLS!
Soaked in Hardship,
Superiority and SHAME
As the pages flipped, Anger grew Fame
We declared our independence in 57.
Never again to serve
Our Country, still suffers from Fright
In 2012, the evidence shows
Slavery EXISTS, slavery still BOLD
From 1957, GHANA has grown,
GHANA’s still young,
Never too OLD,
Embrace our 55th year, by teaching Other’s about GHANA, whether it be facts, history, or culture, spread and share our history.
Host or organise events/ activities to celebrate our history.
