Acknowledgement
The Ghana Nsem masthead design was independently conceived in mid-2009. It turns out that www.houseofknowledge.com was already using the Adinkra symbol of lifelong quest for knowledge in its design, and that Akoben, a Ghana Network for Women’s Rights (NETRIGHT) publication, was also already using the Adinkra war horn symbol in its design. Ghana Nsem hereby acknowledges their prior use of the symbols.
