African Liberation Day 2013


“Pan-Africanism is Power: We Must Unite!”

“African Liberation Day for us is only an instrument to help organize our people…” – Kwame Ture

ALD was founded in 1958 when Kwame Nkrumah convened the First Conference of Independent States held in Accra, Ghana and attended by eight independent African states. The 15th of April was declared “African Freedom Day,” to mark each year the onward progress of the liberation movement, and to symbolize the determination of the people of Africa to free themselves from foreign domination and exploitation.
