About the Book
Our Motherland chronicles the remarkable life of a true Ghanaian patriot who has been an active participant and observer in Ghanaian political transitions. His African cultural influences are undergirded by his deep spiritual belief in articulating the needs of Ghana and Africa as an influential communicator. His leadership legacy as a visionary will be remembered for generations to come as one of the best Ghanaian and Pan Africanist thinkers of his generation.

Key Selling Points

• Our Motherland is an enthralling account of the remarkable life of Kojo Yankah, a genuine Ghanaian patriot and an unapologetic Pan Africanist, teacher, communicator, honourable citizen, father and husband.
• Apart from the sheer joy of it, this book has to be read to gain an understanding of where Ghana has been since independence in 1957 and its future prospects.
• Yankah’s story will inspire both the young and old with the same sterling qualities (as Ama Ata Aidoo observes) that seem to be missing in today’s Ghanaian and African leadership.
