Born on September 18, 1909, Kwame Nkrumah was the first President of Ghana in West Africa. Assuming the position in 1957, Nkrumah began to construct a theoretical and practical guide for liberation of African people. Placing his theory into action, Nkrumah through the Convention Peoples Party, proceeded to build a socialist united states of Africa. Frightened by the real probability of the defeat of capitalism and the worldwide implications of that defeat, the U.S., through its Central Intelligence Agency (C.I.A.) and in collaboration with “neo-colonnial” puppets in Ghana, overthrew Nkruman’s government in 1966. He was invited by the people of Guinea to come and live there as the Co-President of that nation with Ahmed Sekou Toure. There in Guinea, Nkrumah continued to organize for Pan-Africanism. Nkrumah died on April 27, 1972 from cancer. His contributions to theAfrican revolution, in theory and in practice, are many.
