Historian and former archivist of the Basel Mission, Dr. Paul Jenkins, will take a look at some of the testimonies of female and male black voices from the Gold Coast (Ghana), including thefirst Ghanaian to be ordained pastor by the Basel Mission, Theophil Opoku (1842-1913): Opoku’s reports sent to the Mission House in Basel shed unusual light on the reception of his message by the indigenous communities among which he worked as well as on his relations with the British colonial power.
