Jerry John Rawlings- Ghanaian Dictator, Defending his Reign

April 2, 2010

Jerry John Rawlings is a former military ruler who after one failed coup, over through the Ghanaian government and held power for almost two decades. While some say JJ brought positive change to Ghana’s economy, the majority of those who I speak with say he was a terror and a monster. He is accused of killing off many of his political opponents, supreme court justices, and military leaders. I got to photograph and meet him at a New York University Africa House event this past winter.

Hanging with JJ Rawlings and his PR people!
