Ghana and The King of Asante hold court on Beale Street

Beale Street was royal ground on Saturday as the Memphis in May International Festival’s monthlong salute to the Republic of Ghana crescendoed with a visit by King Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the 16th Asantehene (King of Asante).

The afternoon celebration featured a traditional Ghanian “Durbar Ceremony” to “honor ancestors cleanse society and pray for the fruitfulness of the land and the welfare of the people.”
