    Ghana is 60 today. Just in case you dont know the history, here is the shortest version. If you want to know more please research online.

    Dr Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana's first president gained independence on March 6th 1957 with the help of his team who were know as the Big Six, himself included.After he took over from the British, he change the name from the Gold Coast. The bristish called it that because the land was rich in Gold. Dr Nkrumah was a follower of The Honorable Marcus Garvey. The name Ghana was from the Great Mali empire. He wanted the old Ghana to be as great as the new one.

    Peace!

    March 6 represents the 60th anniversary of the independence of the former British colony of the Gold Coast. The country was renamed Ghana at independence in order to reclaim the glorious accomplishments of the ancient kingdom in West Africa which lasted from the 6th to the 13th centuries CE.

    Dr. Kwame Nkrumah was the co-founder of the Convention People’s Party (CPP) and stated during the independence celebrations that the independence of Ghana was meaningless unless it was linked up with the total liberation of the African continent. Consequently, the foreign policy of Ghana was largely based upon the realization of a United States of Africa.
