Jamestown – Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

An exhibition on the Ga-Mashie Boxing Heritage took place between 27th January and 4th February at the Museum of Science and Technology in Accra, Ghana.

Directed by one of our Co-Investigators, Professor Kodzo Gavua, the exhibition was all about the impact boxing has had on the Ga-Mashie community both recreationally and commercially.

While exploring the boxing heritage the exhibition also presented Ghanaian history from an alternative perspective – one that unites rather than separates people.
