Widely regarded as the nation’s founder, Kwame Nkrumah was the leader of Ghana’s independence movement and first black African to take over power from an European colonial administration in Sub-Saharan Africa in 1957.
Kwame Nkrumah was a founding member of the Organisation for African Unity (now African Union), in 1963, through which he spearheaded an ambitious agenda to help other African countries gain independence and unite the entire continent as one nation.
His regime was overthrown while he was on a trip to China in 1966 after which he settled in Guinea where he was accorded the title of ‘co-president’ by the country’s leader, Sekou Toure.
Nkrumah lived in Guinea until his death on April 27, 1972 while receiving medical care in Bucharest, Romania.
Also known as ‘Osagyefo’, Kwame Nkrumah authored several books, in which he shared his Pan-Africanist philosophy and vision for a united, fully-independent and non-aligned Africa during the Cold War era.
Among his books are: Africa Must Unite (Or Die), Consciencism, I Speak of Freedom, Class Struggle in Africa, The Challenge of the Congo, Dark Days in Ghana, Rhodesia File, Neocolonialism, the Last Stage of Imperialism, Revolutionary Warfare, Revolutionary Path, and I Speak of Freedom and The Struggle Continues.
