Author/Illustrator: Useni E Perkins
$ 1795 USD



"Essential reading for any and all future (and current) freedom fighters." Kirkus Reviews - starred review

On a humid March night in 1957, Kwame Nkrumah made history. While thousands of people cheered, including dignitaries from round the world, he announced his country's independence. After many years of British rule, Ghana, formerly the Gold Coast, became the first sub-Saharan African nation to break free from colonial rule.

With prose by renowned poet-activist Useni Eugene Perkins and illustrations by Coretta Scott King Honor winner Laura Freeman, Kwame Nkrumah’s Midnight Speech for Independence captures the grandeur of the momentous night Ghana was declared a free nation and the remarkable life of one of Africa’s most celebrated leaders.
