Ghana White


My knowledge of our history was taught to me by my parents. Also at freedom school on Saturdays in the 1960s. I graduated from Spelman college, a UNCF school where my studies continued and also through independent research. I was born April 1957. Ghana become independent in March 1957 and my Mom and Dad named me Ghana in honor of the African country.
