Post-Racial America has Ghana in it

First it was Barack Obama, now it's Ruby & Sam. Somehow, this post-racial America (like most things great and progressive) had to have Ghana in it :)

Ruby Amanfu was born in Ghana and moved to Nashville with her family when she was 3. Sam Brooker grew up in Green Bay, Wisc., and answered Music City’s siren call after finishing college. They each spent years pursuing promising solo careers (Amanfu had a hit single, “Sugah,” on the U.K. pop charts in 2003) before becoming an official duo in 2005

Their music was featured in the movie "The Secret Life of Bees" starring Dakota Fanning, Queen Latifah, and Jennifer Hudson.

They've been interviewed by several news organizations. Check out their interview on NPR.
