Hollywood actor-Boris Kodjoe, full name Boris Frederic Cecil Tay-Natey Ofuatey-Kodjoe has given a big shoutout to his Ghanaian heritage by uploading the above photo on his facebook and adding a touching history to it.
We’ve also known that Kodjoe was born in Vienna, Austria, to Ursula, a German psychologist of partially Jewish descent, and Eric Kodjoe, a Ghanaian physician who is of the Nzema people.
But on Wednesday, he went deeper–by writing the below to go with the photo:

Heritage Wednesday
Accra Ghana circa 1950.
My grandparents, Chief of Police Joseph Cecil Ofuatey-Kodjoe and Elsie Ofuatey-Kodjoe, and behind them standing from left to right, my father Eric, Kiddie, and Freddie. Why my aunt Esther wasn’t in the picture I do not know. This shot was taking a few years before Kwame Nkrouma led Ghana (formally Gold Coast) to Independence from Britain.
Side note; my grandmother didn’t look into the lense because she didn’t know where it was. She had gone blind from cataract left untreated. I never noticed she was blind because she would always comment on my clothes and what I was doing. Little did I know that while I was sitting on her lap her housekeeper was feeding her intel in her native dialect. By the way, she founded the girl scouts in Ghana.
