This year, in an effort to better engage and educate York University students and the community about Ghanaian culture and African history, in general, the Ghanaian Students’ Association at York is having a live performance celebration on Thursday, March 6th in the Students’ Centre Food Court from 6pm to 10pm. The vision for this event is to have live drumming, dancers, singing, fashion shows, and a Ghanaian and African history lesson through acting. With Ghana being the first sub-Saharan African country to gain independence, it is only appropriate that we’ll also be having other African student associations at York participating in both shows and dance; as March 6th 1957 was the start of independence for African countries.
