Abstract:

This Globe Trekker video follows Megan McCormick through West Africa, where Europeans uncovered gold in Ghana and ivory in the Cote d'Ivoire 500 years ago. Her trip includes a visit to a coffin shop in Ghana's capital, Accra, a traditional Ga funeral, a talking drum lesson from famous drummer Mustapha Addy, a brush with warthogs and elephants at the Mole Game Reserve, and a trip to Kumasi, birthplace of Kente cloth where the textile is still woven today after 400 years. Here Megan visits a goldsmith who makes trinkets for the Ashanti king and then heads to the slave castles of Elmina and Cape Coast where millions of slaves were tortured until 1865. Megan's journey ends with a wedding in the village of Neana, during which masked dancers perform extraordinary acrobatics, the village sage performs rituals asking ancestors to bless the union, and the whole village dances until sunset.
