Slavery Resistance in Ghana

NCRM 2

The subject of slavery continues to engage the attention of scholars worldwide because the subject is of contemporary relevance and importance and new sources, new ideas, new methods, new approaches and new evidences keep emerging. Ghana’s role and contribution to trans-Atlantic slavery is recounted differently in diverse spaces between the country and the rest of the world because some local content in these histories have been left out. The lack of contribution of the people’s narrative to this discourse distorts the facts and creates a gap in the slavery resistance stories.

This exhibition seeks to fill some of the gaps by taking another look at the narrative of resistance to slave raiding activities in Ghana from the point of view of the victims and not that of the recorded manuscripts that did not reflect the counter narrative.
