Konadu calls attention to the historic formation of Akan culture in West Africa and its reach into the Americas. He examines the Akan experience in Guyana, Jamaica, Antigua, Barbados, former Danish and Dutch colonies, and North America, and how those early experiences foreground the contemporary engagement and movement of diasporic Africans and Akan people between Ghana and North America.
