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.
