April 27, 2023 -With technology ever advancing in the fields of transportation and communication, the world is smaller than it has ever been before. A handful of artists and entrepreneurs are seizing this opportunity to rebuild a connection between the African Diaspora and continental Africa.
One such entrepreneur is the founder of the PR company Ford Communications, Lakeshia Ford. Born to Jamaican parents in the United States of America, Ford first touched down on the continent “many moons ago.” When she was studying in China to learn Mandarin and Chinese history, Ford noticed the large influx of Chinese activity on the African continent. Her interest was piqued. She leaped at the opportunity to extend her study abroad program in Ghana.
