The Fisti Peddler Returns
Tuesday of this week there occurred in Washington one of
the most dramatic episodes in the annals of American history.
It was the visit o/ i’rcsideiit Kwatne Nkrumah of Ghana to
to this country. Greeted at the Washington National Airport
by President Kennedy, wlio drove through a drizzling rain
to extend a red carpet welcome to the.head of the African
Nation, Nkrumah later addressed the opening session of the
United Nations Geneml Assembly.
Our minds go back to the year 1928 when Nkrumah, as a
student in the United States, was peddling fish on the streets
of Brooklyn, New York in an effort to earn enough money
to continue his education in this country. The then poor Afri
can native had come to America to secure an education v«rith
the hope of returning to his native country to help it find
its place among the leadingt nations of the world. Although
Ghana cannot yet ba said to have reached the status of a
great power, in comparison with other nations of the world
she is well on her way, and tnuch credit must be given to the
wise leadership of Nkrumah.
