The picture showed the young Nkrumah sitting in a chair with his mother sitting close beside him. It appeared to be a professional photo because both mother and son had put on serious faces.

Kwame Nkrumah is noted to be a family man and gave priority to his family. At the age of 48, he took for a wife, Fathia Helen Ritzk who was then 25 years old and a student of the University of Cairo.
