President Obama’s Visit to Ghana

U.S. President Barack Obama says Africans must take more responsibility for wiping out poverty, war and disease on the continent. In a speech to the Ghanaian parliament, the president said we need – what he described as – a new moment of great progress.

The first African-American president of the United States received an enthusiastic welcome in the Ghanaian capital, where he was embraced as family.

He responded with some tough talk – the kind of talk only a family member can provide.

The president – the son of a Kenyan father – spoke of his personal connection to Africa’s tragic past.   But he said the time has come for Africans to take control of their own destiny.
