Meet The First Man From Ebonyi to Study Abroad

This is a hilarious, epic and classic photo of Mr. James Nwachi (2nd left) and this is his send-off party to the US. He is said to be the first member from Afikpo, Eastern Nigeria (Ebonyi State) to travel abroad and study at the Central College, Kansas, US. And in that honour, a feast was organized for him.. The villagers including the children surrounded him as they probably saw him as their hero who would better their lives and change their fortunes. Circa 1960.
