History, if told by third parties, loses its essence. No one can write about another person’s experience without leaving out some important details. This is why the authors decided to come together and share their journey.
In compiling the chapters that resulted in this book, the main goal was to figure out where we are from, who we are, where we are, and where we want to go.
In The History of Ghanaians in Germany, you have an A-Z encounter with the writers of the pages. A-Z in that, the book addresses everything from; politics to religion to education to social life amongst others. It must be noted that this book tells the story of a people with a shared experience from two countries. Both countries play a huge role in shaping the lives of Ghanaians.
