Walking with My Ancestors: Cape Castle:
“Walking With My Ancestors: Cape Coast Castle” (2019) is an award-winning one-woman theatrical/music/dance performance. It charts the painful return of a Black mother, Ama Oforiwaa Aduonum, who seeks guidance from the spirits of her Ancestors at former dungeons for enslaved Africans in Ghana’s Cape Coast Castle. She discovers some truths, fear, and wisdom as she shares the depths of pain and celebration and communes with the spirits of her Ancestors. This ritual journey connects the present and the past, as it leads to revelation and reconciliation. It is based on original, first-hand research conducted at the former dungeons.

For additional information contact Dr. Oforiwaa Aduonum (309) 438-7340
