I was in Palmgrove, Lagos to photograph the famous cover artist Lemi Ghariokwu. Lemi did 26 of Fela’s covers. He has over 2000 covers to his credit but the reason why I’m talking about him today, is because he’s a serious Nkrumah fan and panafricanist. After talking about Fela for a while, he pointed to a painting that was sitting quietly by the wall and asked me, “Can you identify who that is?” That is the painting below and the text says:
“Practice without thought is blind, thought without practice is empty”.
Have a great Founder’s Holiday if you are in Ghana today.
Happy Birthday, Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah. RIP.
