Professor Essien Launches His Book at the Brazilian Embassy in Ghana

Ambassador Laudemar Goncalves de Aguiar Neto, Charge d’Affaires, Brazilian Embassy in Ghana invited Professor Kwame Essien to launch his book Brazilian-African Diaspora in Ghana: The Tabom, Slavery, Dissonance of Memory, Identity, and Locating Home at the Brazilian Embassy in Accra, Ghana. The book is about the story of ex-slaves from Brazil and how they resettled in Gã Mãŋ, Accra from the 1820s after they gained their freedom. It is also about their descendants, the "Tabom" people and their ongoing search for their 'lost' ancestral connections to Brazil.
