Pelosi adresses Ghanaian parliament on slave trade anniversary

Pelosi reaffirmed a message of friendship between the two nations as she became the first female U.S. Speaker of the House to address the parliament.

The House Speaker praised Ghana, which she described as a ‘source of hope in the fight against discrimination and segregation’ when it gained independence in 1957 and for helping stabilise the continent through democracy and security.

The speech forms part of her four-day visit to the country alongside a 12-member delegation from the Congressional Black Caucus to hold high level talks with Ghana’s President Nana Akufo Addo.

Pelosi and the team visited the slave castles of Elmina and Cape Coast on Tuesday (July 30).
