Today’s Doodle honors Ghana’s Independence Day, which was previously known as the Gold Coast. Ghana became the first African country south of the Sahara to attain independence from colonial rule on this day in 1957.
Ghana and its independence movement sparked independence movements in neighboring African countries as the region’s first.
Citizens around the country are singing along to “Ghana Freedom,” a well-known anthem of independence, and dancing to regional versions of Highlife music to commemorate the occasion.
