This creative collaboration comprises of collection of paintings by Efo Sela and a series of love poems titled Purple Harmattan Series by Elikplim Akorli. This artistic project, is a calculated one which seeks to generate dialogue, debate, give insight, and peer into the objective sense of the human being as much as the subjective sense which happens to be subtle and is therefore based on ones‟ own level of being able to relate. Being able to relate, is not a thing out of human scope and thus all forms of creativity do in fact seek to draw others, from the artists point of view into his or her world which varies due to the expression of individuality which happens to be the gift of the unique soul. The poems herein were written at a period of seasonal change called “Harmattan”.

The notion of African Diaspora has long been associated with the transatlantic or the “Black Atlantic” experience of slavery. Today, the term African diaspora is no longer limited to the transatlantic diaspora, but a voluntary form of migration of Africans in Western countries. The cardinal points, that binds both forced migration and voluntary migration is a common “homeland” or “motherland” – Africa. In recent times returnee diasporans both transatlantic and Ghanaian are settling back in Ghana. They play a pivotal role in sectors such as, academia, civil society, politics, culture and economic. These returnee diasporans now form part of the emerging Ghanaian middle class and political elites. This round table seeks to address the role of returnee diaspora (transatlantic and Ghanaian) and their contribution to Ghana’s development 60 years on. Debates on the legacy of slave trade in Anglophone and Francophone worlds with links to Ghana as home of returnee diaspora of African descent will equally be discussed.
