What is Accra Pictures by Day and Night?

Accra is the capital of the small, West African country of Ghana, which achieved its independence in 1957 from its colonial master, the United Kingdom. It celebrated 50 years in 2007, and is projecting itself fast and furiously as "gateway to West Africa".

It's an exciting city, with its unique problems, but with it close to the Atlantic ocean, and many beaches, who can resist coming here?

JB Danquah Circle in Accra (Ghana is 50!)

By way of celebrating Ghana's Jubilee year, here's a picture of the Danquah circle, located some metres away from Osu, Oxford Street--a very popular part of the capital for both Westerners and Ghanaians alike.

J.B.Danquah was a member of the so-called "Big Six", who spearheaded the country's independence. He is also considered by some Ghanaians as the "doyen" of Ghana politics. He is, regrettably, also implicated by some to have been involved in what some consider apocryphal--or questionable--accounts of the overthrow (collusion with CIA) of the first president of Ghana, Dr.Kwame Nkrumah, in 1966.

Here's a picture of the website, where you can find more info on the "Big Six"...
