I Went Back to My Roots

2004 - Somanya, South Eastern Region, Ghana


I spent 13 years of searching public archives and repositories for my forebears enslaved on a sugar plantation in Jamaica.

I found my Great, Great, Great, Great Grandmother - Ami Djaba a who lived on Krobo Mountain.  Ami's history (the history of my forebears (Krobo history))  is captured in the book The Krobo People of Ghana, to 1892: A Political and Social History By Louis E. Wilson.
