In Remembrance of Juneteenth and the Celebration of Freedom, AAMAN is honored to have scheduled a Royal Historical Presentation by a member of the co-founding family of Ghana, Kwame Michael Nana-Appeagyie Brako. Kwame Michael Nana-Appeagyie Brako-(Kwame Nana Brako) is of the Royal Ashanti Eastern Region Clan. Kwame Nana Brako belongs to the Asona Clan (known for their handsomeness of the clans......seriously).

Kwame Nana Brako’s Grand-Uncle was Professor Albert Adu Boahen. Albert Adu Boahen was one of the Founding Fathers of Ghana. He was a Ghanaian Academic, Historian, and Politician representing the New Patriotic Party. He was an academic at the University of Ghana from 1959 to 1990, from 1971 onwards as a professor. In 1992 Albert Adu Boahen was a Ghanaian Presidential Candidate and he is also known as the “Father of Ghana History” and the author of several history books. Professor Albert Adu Boahen passed away on May 24, 2006.
 
Kwame Nana Brako’s greatest passion is, History being told from a Black Perspective. His royal ancestral background, oral history, and heritage have given him the knowledge, teaching, and understanding of what freedom really means. He understands the importance for people of all backgrounds and ethnicities to have the opportunity to learn about their roots and hear the true stories about their history and make it exciting to learn about their ancestors. Kwame Nana Brako has an incredible amount of knowledge that he wants to share.
