“Do not panic. Government is protecting the public.”

I recently found a large collection of glass slides at the Information Services Department Central Film Library. They were originally used by the cinema vans for government educational campaigns on cholera prevention, voting, census, and various government programs. Judging by the Afro hairdos in some of the photos and a few dated slides, I would say most of these are from the late 1960s and early 1970s.

There are some real gems here—my favorite assures Ghanaians during a cholera epidemic, “Do not panic. Government is protecting the public.”
