Ghanaians are Celebrating Their Country's Independence With #GhanaAt60

Today marks Ghana's 60th independence day from British colonial rule.

On March 6, 1957 Ghana told the British to literally "GTFOH," and became the first African nation, under colonial rule, to gain its independence.


60 years ago today, Kwame Nkrumah, gave an impassioned victory speech in front of a massive crowd of jubilant Ghanaians in which he declared "at long last, the battle has ended. Ghana, our beloved country is free forever."

Today, Ghanaians are still triumphant, and have taken to social media to celebrate their country's revolutionary feat. The outpouring of pride and love is real.

Even #SaltBae showed out.

It went down earlier today at Ghana's Independence Square.

People are expressing their love through creativity.

And food.

And through creativity and food together.

Ghana's independence is symbolic for all of Africa and the diaspora. Long live the Black Stars!
