• Camouflage

    Sompa is becoming thoroughly shocked in her early days at the University of Nsoroma. But as the days and months go by and encounters occur, nothing surprises her anymore. Like Araba, Naomi and Elikem, she has various goals that will help her step out and stand out but as she meets new people and makes new friends, her identity is threatened and she is forced to fit into the environment and to re-evaluate her choices. And when she is shot, framed and hanged, she is faced with the decision of either staying defeated or getting up.

  • Death and Pain: Rawlings’ Ghana – The Inside Story

    “On 30 December 1981, the Ghana Armed Forces held a party at the Ministry of Defence at Burma Camp. The President, Dr. Hilla Limann, had been invited, but because of the security situation in the country he was advised not to attend. Around 3 p.m. the President changed his mind and decided to attend the party. It was not until around midnight that he returned to his official residence at the Castle.

    “Around this time, 10 soldiers, some retired, all other ranks, gathered some two miles to the south of the Camp waiting for grenades and other ammunition from their accomplices at the First Infantry Battalion at Michel Camp, about 20 miles to the East of their position. They never turned up. At about 2 a.m. on 31 December 1981, the small group decided to move. Their objective: to seize the country and form a new government.

    “Leaving the Labadi beach in the neighbourhood of the Teshie Military Range, the handful of coupmakers moved through the bush to the Recce Cookhouse. Among them were C.C. Addae, Matthew Adabuga, Gbofah, Braimah, Alidu Gyiwah, Sammy Amedeka and Allieu. Jerry Rawlings was already in Burma Camp hiding in the room of Adabuga at the Gondar Barracks…”

    Do you want a first-hand account from the murderers of the 3 judges and officer whilst they were in Nsawam Prison waiting to be executed by firing squad? Do you want to see the list of Ghanaians who went ‘missing’ during the Revolution? A relevant piece of Ghana history is in this book.

  • From Jamestown to Jamestown: Letters to an African Child

    Young people of all races are mostly oblivious to the reality of the struggles of “African people” historically and contemporarily. They do not know there has been a conscious effort to eliminate this history; and, they have been deceived in such a way to suggest that “it” [the history] never existed. Kojo Yankah, in his book From Jamestown to Jamestown: Letters to an African Child has chronicled the true history of Africa and the Diaspora during a critical period in a manner that will gain the attention of folk across races, across continents, and across generations. His unique approach to sharing history though letters is sure to create a readership that is more informed about the history of African people throughout the Diaspora. This is a “must read” book which traces the African people from Jamestown, Africa to Jamestown, Virginia highlighting their journey and their challenges along the way. — Joseph H. Silver, Ph.D

    From Jamestown to Jamestown: Letters to an African Child is a thoughtfully refreshing account of African history that pensively reflects the ancestral wisdom of our African forebears that urges lions to tell their own stories instead of relying on stories that hunters always tell to glorify themselves, at the ruinous expense of lions. In a word, Efo Kojo tells the lions’ tale of African history to a young African ( and to older ones as well), Ayesha – she who lives; and it is only when Africans can tell their own stories from their perspective that they can amply safeguard their ever-abiding consciousness and substantial identity. The admirably skillful way in which the author manages to tell the story in the form of letters, manageable doses of life-sustaining historical information, and all in language that is not perceptively intimidating, should appeal, especially, to Ayesha and her generation. And the value of the information contained in the book may be found in the question, “what would become of our children if they possessed the information contained in this book?” This is a must reading for Ayesha and her contemporaries as well as their parents and grandparents. — Kofi Asare Opoku, Professor, Africana Studies
