PAN-AFRICAN SERIES: Kwame Nkrumah



Former Ghanaian First President, Freedom Fighter and Champion of the Pan African Movement Kwame Nkrumah did say that

“I am not African because I was born in Africa but because Africa was born in me”

These words were remiscent of the works that Kwame Nkrumah did on the continent of Africa. He was part of the team that championed the Pan African Movement which aims at bring Africans to a realization that Africa can not be free unless it is economically independent. The movement of Political Emancipation for the African continent from Colonial Masters Kwame Nkrumah championed yielded Political Independence for many African countries. Due this works, many countries on the continent have made statues of him.
In Zambia, he has a University named after called Kwame Nkrumah University and a statue of him was erected on the campus.

The future of the World Economy is Africa therefore, Africa needs to work out modalities to develop herself and free herself from the shackles of Colonial Economic Imperialism as Kwame Nkrumah and many Pan-Africanists wished for
