Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, the Embassy of Ghana, USA, has partnered with various Ghanaian organizations to host virtual celebrations to commemorate Ghana’s 64th independence day.
While it is a common practice for the Embassy to hold a reception and join hands with Ghanaians in Washington D.C., as well as travel to different parts of the United States to celebrate independence day, this year’s activities are unique in its virtual component because of the Pandemic.
The sixth of March marks an important day in our nation’s history. It is a day that serves as a reminder for Ghanaians globally to reflect on our heritage, our history, our progress, and our strides toward a brighter future.
The world is also reminded of our courage particularly the role of our nation’s first President, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, in the fight for independence for our country and the continent at large.
It is against this backdrop that the Embassy calls on you to join us in celebration of this year’s independence day by participating in all or one of the outlined activities.
