HISTORY OF PAN AFRICANISM

Marcus Garvey and WEB Dubois

Pan Africanism arose out of and in response to the oppressions of African peoples and their dignity, self respect, spiritual freedom, independent statehood, social and economic freedom, the emancipation of women, the end to apartheid, religious freedom, freedom of movement, freedom of expression, economic cooperation, African unity and social transformation have all being placed on the agenda as elements of African liberation from the period of slavery to the revolution and liberation.

This concept was born out of the demand to reconnect the Diaspora Africans to the Mother Continent, its history, culture, and right to self-determination with a goal of healing from the Transatlantic Slave Trade’s genocidal attack on African civilization and development.
