Dr. Kojo, besides this political work in Ghana as a Member of Parliament, is a renown, legendary Journalist. He is the Author of some 10 books about historic, history making during the liberation of Africa from colonial rule. He has also made much contemporary history in Africa’s struggle against “Neo-Colonialism,” as the first president of Ghana, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah termed all efforts to thwart Africa’s destiny to become One United Africa.
Dr. Kojo’s work in Neo-Colonialism laden Africa continues. Indeed, he is in America to do three basic things, 1) Attend the Doctorate graduation of his daughter-in-law from Walden University 2) A Nationwide tour to Promote his latest book and 3) Visit KKVV again, this time to see & research the Nat Turner Library Building as a part of his research for a new book,
“JAMESTOWN, ACCRA GHANA vs JAMESTOWN, USA.”
