All God's Children Need Traveling Shoes

Travel back to when Ghana gained it independence. Ghana was the first African nation to earn its independence after colonization. On 6 March, 1957 Kwame Nkruma became the first president of Ghana.  He then called for the African Diaspora to come home.  Maya Angelou heeded the call. She and her college age son went to Ghana where he attended Legon-The University of Ghana.

It was very interesting to read her reactions to the new African democracy and the reactions of the Ghanaians to Maya Angelou.
