Author Agnes Afua Manu Oforiwah’s Newly Released “Memoirs From Agnes” is the Story of a Child Slave Saved by Government Action That Uprooted a Culture of Disempowerment
Date:7/14/2017

“Memoirs From Agnes”: a firsthand look into the hardships of Ghana from the eyes of a former child slave. “Memoirs From Agnes” is the creation of published author, Agnes Afua Manu Oforiwah, a native of eastern Ghana and daughter of the Akan Royal Family (Odeshee), who was enslaved to her father’s own niece then empowered by free and compulsory education to become a well-educated woman, wife, mother, and grandmother.

“My question is, what is the government doing for these citizens? Dr. Kwame Nkrumah had a plan, what do we have now? This is food for thought now!
Many thanks to Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, in blessed memory, whose vision for education got me out of family enslavement into a now retired well-educated woman, wife, mother, and grandmother.” --Agnes Afua Manu Oforiwah

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Agnes Afua Manu Oforiwah’s new book tells the story of a child slave and the struggles of Ghana.

Between the ages of four and five, author Agnes Afua Manu Oforiwah was taken from her mother by her father and given to her father’s niece, who was a newlywed and the new mother of a daughter. Per the custom at the time, most married women from good families had a young girl to help them with their daily chores. That burden fell on the shoulders of girls like Agnes Afua Manu Oforiwah. She was a maid, but not for hire, because she was classified as a member of the family. In reality, she was a victim of family enslavement.

In her father’s world, girls were not to attend school. They expected to learn good housekeeping practices through apprenticeship. The belief was that girls would do better if they did not live at home with their mothers, since mothers allegedly spoil their children. This culture was very rampant until President Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana’s first president, made education free and compulsory. Education is what changed the author’s story, yet today’s struggles in Ghana may be worse due the increase in global population and migration.
