Armchair Traveler: Ghana—Gold, Slaves, Missionaries, and Democracy
Travel to Ghana, West Africa, to learn about its history and how Ghanaians live today. Ghana was the first sub-saharan African country to become independent from its European colonizer. It experienced a difficult birth, but was one of the first African countries to have a peaceful transfer of power, which was repeated in November 2016. Join us to learn more about this fascinating, developing nation.
Presenters: Bruce and Sharon Reichenbach, who lived and taught in Ghana for months in 2016.
