HACC, Central Pennsylvania's Community College, invites the public to a discussion on Ghana, one of Africa's most democratic governments. The presentation is an outcome of an ongoing cultural exchange between HACC and the African country.

"Ghana: Reflections on a West African Cultural Experience" is scheduled for Tuesday, March 15, from 12:30 p.m. to 1:45 p.m. in the International Room, Cooper Student Center on HACC's Harrisburg Campus.

The free presentation, which is sponsored by HACC's Institutional Diversity Committee, will provide participants with the opportunity to learn about Ghana through prose, pictures, food, dance and music.

"I intend to present a positive image of one African country," said Valerie Gray, assistant professor, English/technical and business writing, who recently spent 15 days in Ghana. "It was an emotional trip for me. From a western point of view, it was interesting to see people who were very content to live in traditional indigenous ways."

Gray's presentation will include discussion on the country's history and how it's culture views family, religion and the role of women in the family structure.

In addition, the Imani Edu-tainers of Lancaster, a group that has performed previously at HACC, will provide traditional dance and music demonstrations.
