Ghana. The first country in Sub-Saharan Africa to gain independence, a regional power in West Africa, and home to 30 million people. Ghana -- like many other African countries -- has a rich oral literature history. For this post, I wanted to discover the writings of Ghanaians, and this selection of books is a good introduction to Ghanaian authors and a peek into Ghanaian culture and history. Each one of these authors has Ghanaian ancestry and was born and/or raised in Ghana.
