Ghana, One Year Old: a First Independence Anniversary Review


This pamphlet recaptures the main events of the first year of Ghana’s history as an independent country. It features texts on politics by the prime minister and the leader of the opposition, a political year in review, and greetings from foreign leaders. Also included are articles on the arts, sports, education, science, and agriculture of the country, as well as stories about Ghana’s role in the world and its plans for the future. Moses Danquah, a long-time columnist for the Daily Graphic and one of Ghana’s most famous journalists, wrote several of these articles as well as compiled and edited the pamphlet. Danquah went on to become an important chronicler of Ghana’s early history. The pamphlet includes advertisements from international companies established in Ghana, such as Mobil Oil, Philips Engineering, Singer Sewing Machines, and even a local Pontiac (General Motors) automobile dealership.
