Kwame Nkrumah failed because like W.E.B. Dubois, he was a Pan-Afrikanist in theory not practice! Europeans held high positions in Nkrumah's government!
I don't know much about this but wanting to learn more...
Is this still the case in the current administration? Africa Needs A Collective Voice -- President John Mahama
"In this book, Kwame Nkrumah spells out the tactics and strategy for the African Union. His argument is that until and unless African countries unite at the political, economic, defence and economic fronts, the continent and its people will have no true freedom and prosperity. He contends that neo-colonialism is a threat to the viability of the newly independent African states. He also cites examples of the United States of America and the former Soviet Union as examples of major unions of states in the world."
Someone please help me understand how Black people can achieve a collective voice when things like this are being done: George Walker Bush Highway in Acca, Ghana.
China and Ghana seem to be happy with their relationship. Looks as though it's doing a lot of good for both countries. Can we, as Black people, still have a collective union while maintaining this type of connection?
How does this work?
In answer to your question, NO! According to the late Dr. John Henrik Clarke, Ghana, like most Afrikan countries, is a basket case! There are white "Jesus freaks" running around all over the place, and the economy is still controlled by foreigners. China has a population of over one and a half billion people to feed. Do you really think that they are in Afrika to benefit the Afrikans? Come on, get a grip on yourself! In Angola a couple of years ago the Afrikans had to kill ten Chinese for trying to force a ten hour workday on them, when they only wanted to work eight! Imagine that, in their own land!!! We are still burdened with a ignorant, stupid, corrupt, and cowardly leadership! First and foremost we must embrace a crystal clear ideology. By the process of elimination PanAfrikanism is the only solution. Nothing else has worked! Then and only then will we be able to unite and move forward!!!!!
I wouldn't be surprised! Beware when you read or hear about Afrikan "leaders" with foreign names, especially European names!
The answer to my question is probably already in a thread here somewhere but I'm being really lazy right now because I don't feel like searching. So please forgive me, but...
Garvey presented a plan, Malcolm X presented a plan, and other Black leaders have done the same.
Tell me, what causes these plans for Black unity and liberation to fail? I know the answer isn't a simple one but is there something that all of the failing efforts have in common?
Is this myth?
