KWAME NKRUMAH AND THE PANAFRICAN VISION: BETWEEN ACCEPTANCE AND REBUTTAL
Keywords:Pan-Africanism, Kwame Nkrumah, African Unity.
This paper focuses on the pan-African vision of Kwame Nkrumah, the first president of independent Ghana, and how this vision has been appreciated over time. Nkrumah was the greatest advocate of the political unity of Africa. This was to enable the continent to ward off exploitation by the West and then build a continent self-reliant. This paper examines the divergence in the acceptance and rebuttal of his vision for Africa through a content analysis of written works.
