Cultural Imperialism and Manipulation in Gold Coast: At the Crossroad, the Junction Back Home

Edmund Selorm Sosu


Thomas Hobbes over three thousand years ago, regretfully observed how daunting it was to arrive at an infallible conclusion about men, for unlike grammar and English composition, the comparison of men and societies invariably involves a clash of truth and interest, as well as passion, particular in a time of crisis. During certain time zones of man’s history, the values on which societal members trod on are undermined and the very facets underpinning societies are questioned. Culture which is an indelible entity of any society is taunted as a result of clash among differing societies. Gold Coast (now Ghana) clash with British imperialism sparked cultural blindness in her citizenries. Looming as may it sound, this paper brings to thought very exegesis of Kobina Sekyi’s Blinkards on the cultural ignominy among Gold Coasters at the Crossroad and offers a junction back to African heritage using Casely Hayford’s Ethiopian Unbound and Ayi Kwei Armah’s the Healers as ambits of thoughts back home.

Keywords: Africanism, Colonialism, Culture, Healing, Wounds.
