Today [Monday] marks the 60th anniversary of Ghana’s independence from colonial rule on March 6, 1957 – a period when the wind of self-determination swept across the entire continent.

The celebration over the years has attracted hundreds of participants both local and foreign to the Independence Square renamed Black Star Square.

It is often replete with parades, a speech by the President and a march past by both students and contingents of security agencies.

Below are some pictures of the 2017 celebration:
