Title:The Aborigines Society, Kwame Nkrumah and the 1945 Pan-African Congress
Author:Asante, S.K.B.ISNI
Periodical:Research Review
Geographic term:Ghana
Subjects:national liberation movements
Abstract:The Gold Coast Aborigines Rights Protection Society was from 1897 to 1920 the only national political body of the Gold Coast people and the pivot of all nationalist politics. In 1932, when the colonial government withdrew its recognition of the Society, it became more and more involved in the anti-imperialist and Pan-African associations abroad. The article describes 1) the contacts between the Society and these associations, 2) the participation in the all-important 1945 Pan-African Congress and 3) the contacts with Nkrumah who was a more radical fighter for freedom than the members of the Society.
