"Postcards from Charlottesville," Show #9

After a brief summer reprieve, "Postcards from Charlottesville" is back with another episode. This month our focus is Winneba, a university town in Ghana that will soon be considered for designation as Charlottesville's next Sister City -- the first one outside of Europe. Two Charlottesville residents, Nana Ghartey (who is from Winneba and is leading the charge to establish the Sister City relationship) and Sarah Denham (who recently spent 6 months teaching in Winneba) join me to discuss life in Winneba and what a Sister City relationship with that community might entail. The episode premieres this Friday at 7:00pm on Charlottesville Public Access (Channel 13). To view it on-line, click here:

Dave,
I was reminded this morning that Sarah Denham currently has a gallery of beautiful art from her time in Winnaba on display downtown at Cafe Cubano through July. It is certainly worth stopping by to see.

Thanks for this article. I write as the chiefs of Winneba. I met or to say it appropriately, Sarah was introduced to me at my palace in Winneba. Unfortunately she did not mentionworking on any sister ciry relationship. Winneba is already committed to city of Birmingham, Al. As US ru;es say it s not possible for a city to have relationship with more than one from one community in Africa. thank you.
