Return of the African-American Overview

This book presents the true-life adventures of an African-American returning to live in Africa. Curtis Morrow "Kojo-Achampong", lived 11 years in several African countries, both in cities and the bush. He lived by his wits and by designing and selling jewelry among other things. He was adopted by the tribe of his ancestors (the Ashanti of Ghana West-Africa). The reader sees and feels the villages of Africa as "Kojo-Achampong" learns tribal customs, drinks palm wine and masters the art of designing jewelry. Above all, a spirit and sense of loyalty, pride and independence of the people permeate this moving account. This book is a must read for African Americans and others seeking a deeper awareness of their roots.
