KWAME NKRUMAH KWAME NKRUMAH
Kwame Nkrumah became the first prime and later president of Ghana. He was born on September 21, 1909, at Nkroful in what was then the British-ruled Gold Coast, the son of a goldsmith. Trained as a teacher, he went to the United States in 1935 for advanced studies and continued his schooling in England, where he helped organize the Pan-African Congress in 1945. He returned to Ghana in 1947 and became general secretary of the newly founded United Gold Coast Convention but split from it in 1949 to form the Convention People's party (CPP). After his 'positive action' campaign created disturbances in 1950, Nkrumah was jailed, but when the CPP swept the 1951 elections, he was freed to form a government, and he led the colony to independence as Ghana 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. As head of government, he was less successful however, and as time passed he was accused of forming a dictatorship. In 1964 he formed a one-party state, with himself as president for life, and was accused of actively promoting a cult of his own personality. Overthrown by the military in 1966, with the help of western backing, he spent his last years in exile, dying in Bucharest, Romania, on April 27, 1972. His legacy and dream of a "United States of African" still remains a goal among many. Nkrumah 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. His numerous writings address Africa's political destiny.

  1. Hey Girl.
    This is beautiful thing you are doing with Age of Awareness and I love the website.
    Congratulations Wendy!

  2. Hi Wendy-Jo–
    Merci, gracias, thanks! Jocie and I had a great time in Ghana! I admired your calm while dealing with so many people. However, we all seemed cooperative. I came home feeling sad (slave dungeons and poverty) but happy (school visits, tours, hotels, people, food, market, etc.) that I finally learned so much about MY heritage. As the years go by, I’ve been pleased to see you become a beautiful, intelligent woman. I continue to praise you at every opportunity. When is the next trip??? Looking forward to it!!! God Bless!
    Luv, Jacqui
