Hosted by UNA Westminster – This conference will mark the 60th anniversary of the All African People’s Conference held in Accra, Ghana. Driven by Dr Kwame Nkrumah, Prime Minister of newly-independent Ghana, it set out to advance the ideology of Pan Africanism through non-alignment, anti-colonialism, anti-imperialism and African unity. It has been hailed as a watershed moment in the history of Africa’s liberation from colonial rule and white supremacy. Former Commonwealth Secretary-General HE Chief Emeka Anyaoku will lead an impressive line-up of speakers. Dr Kenneth Kaunda, veteran African leader, will share his comments by video link.

This event is organised by the School of Commonwealth Studies, University of London and Westminster United Nations Association.
