We Are All Black Stars

Ghana @ 53As we celebrate the 53rd year of independence of the Republic of Ghana, let us remind ourselves of the sacrifices made by our ancestors in the struggle for freedom. Let us also remember that though we may live in a world which seems to glorify 'colorblindness' that our fight is not over, it has just begun. Just because our leaders are Black does not mean that we are not subjected by the realities of neo-colonialism.

Nonetheless, we salute the Ghana of 1957, while hoping that the ideal philosophies of independence and self-reliance will reign once again throughout the African World.

"My government fully realises both the advantages and the responsibilities involved in the achievement of independence. It intends to make full use of these advantages to increase the prosperity of the country." -Kwame Nkrumah
