Ghanaian guests of honor!

Two distinguished Ga visitors brought a bit of Ghana to the IYARE! opening. Dr. Samuel Quartey, Philadelphia podiatrist and traditional ruler, was hosting kingmaker Nii Amarkai III, and brought him along for a look. Many Edo traveled from Benin to Elmina in the late 15th and 16th century as traders, so this cultural exchange has a long history. Many thanks for joining us!
