Narrate Africa Book Review: The Imported Ghanaian

For those of us fortunate enough to travel to abrokyire (abroad) and return, how many times have we talked about the misconceptions of abrokyire, the frustrations of coming back to Ghana from abrokyire and adjusting to Ghanaian society, or even the complex dynamics of infusing change into our political system while keeping the pillars of our culture? I talked about this and did a book review of The Imported Ghanaian in this video.

I’ll be taking part in the first ever AADAT writers’ web chat this Sunday (12th Jan) at 6pm GMT. We’ll be discussing all of the topics we have been researching over the past fortnight — in my case, Rencontres de Bamako, a Malian photography biennale and its contribution to African art discourse.
