Kwame Nkrumah

'Kwame Nkrumah (1909 - 1972) was the motivating force behind the movement for independence of Ghana, then British West Africa, and its first president when it became independent in 1957. A firm believer in African liberation, Nkrumah pursued a radical pan-African policy, playing a key role in the formation of the Organization of African Unity in 1963. His dream was for a "United States of Africa". Source http://www.africawithin.com
